Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) called on the departments of Justice and Treasury and other relevant U.S. agencies to investigate foreclosure actions by Ally Financial and to ensure that homeowners who were wronged receive "proper restitution and compensation."
Franken said the company's filing of false affidavits in support of foreclosures "may have resulted in numerous illegitimate foreclosures across the country." He said the probes should include looking into possible criminal misconduct by Ally and its employees.
In a letter sent Wednesday to Attorney General Eric Holder, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, among others, Franken also asked administration officials to explain what actions the federal government is taking in its oversight role. Al Franken Letter
