Cuccinelli joins multistate investigation of mortgage lenders
Washignton Post staff writers Ariana Eunjung Cha and Dina Elboghdady are reporting that attorneys general all 50 U.S. states announced Wednesday that they are joining to probe mortgage loan servicers who are accused of submitting false affidavits, but they stopped short of calling for a national moratorium.
In a statement, Virginia Attorney Gen. Ken Cuccinelli (R) said of the investigation: "Obviously, this issue affects peoples' homes as well as the economy This probe will be thorough, expeditious, and fair to both homeowners and lenders."
