Trump Treasury pick Mnuchin's company foreclosed on a 90-year-old woman after 27-cent payment error

In Florida, the company foreclosed on a 90-year-old woman after a 27-cent payment error. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo singled out the lender for squeezing Superstorm Sandy victims. Last month, the company’s successor, CIT Bank, was accused of discriminating against minority borrowers.

Two years ago, OneWest filed foreclosure papers on the Lakeland, Florida, home of Ossie Lofton, who had taken a reverse mortgage, a loan that supplies cash to elderly homeowners and doesn’t require monthly payments.

After confusion over insurance coverage, a OneWest subsidiary sent Lofton a bill for $423.30. She sent a check for $423. The bank sent another bill, for 30 cents. Lofton, 90, sent a check for 3 cents. In November 2014, the bank foreclosed.

In October, lawyers at the nonprofit Florida Rural Legal Services contested OneWest’s foreclosure and asked the Polk County Circuit Court for a jury trial.

2. SO IT BEGINS

Is there some way to organize help for this elderly woman?

If there is a trail and masses of people show up, would that help?

What can we do to show how this Mnuchin doesn't belong in a kitchen cabinet, let alone the executive cabinet.


Come on, DU-- surely there must be some way to show support for Ossie and reveal Mnuchin for the monster he is.

5. Just when I think it cannot get any worse

Trump proves me wrong and picks this guy. His education pick was horrible, but now this awful pick over shadows it.
