CREDO, the online progressive organizing group, alleges in a new email to supporters that the Justice Department has not delivered the promised (and paltry) number of 55 staff members to the RMBS working group, the task force co-chaired by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to investigate the mortgage securitization practices of the leading banks.

By: Thursday January 26, 2012 1:35 pm

If you want to see some tremendous activism that acknowledges advances while keeping the big picture squarely in mind, check out CREDO’s statement on the new financial fraud unit. It’s long, but important, so I’m going to put it here in full. After months of activism from people like you, President Obama announced in his [...]

CREDO Calls Out DCCC for Funding Anti-Woman Candidates

By: Saturday October 15, 2011 8:54 am

This week, when the House passed what is colloquially known as the “Let Women Die” Act, which would among other things make it illegal for hospitals to perform a life-saving abortion on a woman, 15 Democrats joined all but two Republicans in voting for it.

CREDO has become the first national progressive group, to my knowledge, to back New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman as he attempts to hold a full investigation into fraud in the securitization processes by the mortgage industry.

Florida’s Killer Presentation on Foreclosure Fraud

By: Thursday January 6, 2011 10:37 am

I’ve mentioned this report from the Florida Attorney General’s office twice now, but I thought I’d highlight it again, because it makes the issues in foreclosure fraud so completely clear. The report consists of 98 slides, laying out the specific activities of mortgage servicers, foreclosure mills and the parent company banks to swindle homeowners and [...]

Chris Bowers wrote on Friday that the DCCC poured over $14 million dollars into members of Congress who looked to be voting No on the health care bill.

CREDO Pushes Hard With “Send Them A Coathanger” Campaign

By: Friday November 13, 2009 4:46 pm

(It’s been one of those days. I’ve known about this since the morning but just got back to a computer to put it up.)

Fun With Flash Games: Website Asks You To “Strip Joe”

By: Wednesday November 4, 2009 2:13 pm

Here’s a fun little Web diversion from CREDO Mobile about America’s favorite politician, Joe Lieberman. CREDO wants there to be consequences if Lieberman joins a Republican-led filibuster to block a final vote on health care reform. Specifically, they want him to be stripped of his chairmanship on the Senate Homeland Security Committee. So they’ve created [...]

The divisions among the business community over climate change have burst into view this year, particularly with respect to the US Chamber of Commerce, which several high-profile companies have left because of their lobbying against a climate bill and their general denial of climate science. Now, several progressive groups are exploiting this rift by targeting [...]
