    several Congressmen to ask them if they've heard of the bill that would outlaw this shit, and AZ's David Schweikert says, "I'm all for it, all for transparency," or something to that effect. He's a real estate vulture who hid from voters during the 2010 election how he made his money -- buying hundreds of foreclosed houses, even forcing out homeowners in the process of refinancing.

    While the home foreclosure crisis continues to cripple the Valley economy, Congressional candidate David Schweikert has exploited the situation and profited handsomely.

    It's no wonder that on the campaign trail Schweikert has been reluctant to talk extensively about what he now does for a living, describing his work in public statements as simply "a small businessman" or the operator of "a real estate business." Link

    Transparency indeed. And today he sits on the Congressional Financial Services committee!
