State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli Statement on the Appointment of Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to Head Special Unit on Mortgage Misconduct
"A great wrong was done to the millions of Americans who were victimized by the reckless behavior of certain financial institutions. As President Obama pointed out last night, we are still feeling the effects of the mortgage crisis in New York and across this nation. I cannot think of a more able public servant to get to the root of this problem than our Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman. Those responsible should be held accountable for their actions, and I have full faith that Attorney General Schneiderman and his partners in law enforcement on this new special unit will deliver justice. This is a proud day for New York State and I commend President Obama for taking this important step forward for our nation."
