If you saw Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" and wonder why no one has still gone to jail for destroying the US economy, this is the time to speak up. 

Schneiderman's staff is waiting for your calls and tweets. Share this widely and add your two cents (while you still have two cents).

*Update: (Tuesday 8/23) New York's AG was just booted from the multi-state committee negotiating a broad settlement with five of the country's biggest mortgage servicers after he objected to the immunity deal they arranged in exchange for loan writedowns.

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, a darling of banks, said Schneiderman's adherence to the rule of law was undermining the group, "simply doesn't make sense, is unprecedented and is unacceptable".

But we learn Schneiderman was not alone - Martha Coakley in Massachusetts, VP Joe Biden's son Beau Biden in Delaware and Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada also wish to preserve the right to investigate, according to Bloomberg's BusinessWeek.

Schneiderman's office vowed this will not deter the efforts to prosecute criminals, saying "the American people deserve an investigation" into "origination and securitization practices before any broad immunity is granted". 

*Update: (Weds 8/24) California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris is also considering joining Schneiderman and the other three AGs in a wider fraud probe after forming a state task force in May (LA Times). Contact her office here.
