Conspiracy theorists, start your engines! There's definitely something a little funny about this:
The acting chief financial officer of Freddie Mac, David Kellermann, has apparently committed suicide, Fairfax County Police tell WTOP.
Fairfax County Police spokeswoman Mary Anne Jennings says Kellermann, 41, was found at his Hunter Mill Estates home Wednesday morning.
Kellermann has been with Freddie Mac for more than 16 years
You've been with a company almost your entire profession life, become the top dog at the relatively young age of 41, then you off yourself?
The AP suggests it was hari-kari (maybe he was taking Senator Grassley's advice?)
McLean-based Freddie Mac has been criticized heavily for reckless business practices that some argue contributed to the housing and financial crisis.
Homicide detectives are looking into the Kellerman "suicide" as well. Reuters reports that "the incident is under investigation". And Mickey Kaus reports on previous friction between Kellerman and the Obama administration's lackeys...(hmmm...motive?)
All very interesting. As the CFO of Freddie Mac, who knows what type of dangerous information Kellerman had on men in power? Long used as a political tool of the left, the Democrats were often implicated in Freddie Mac's collapse (and thus the entire housing market debacle), but with a compliant media playing dumb and the criminals ruling the roost in Congress, blame was shifted to the lending institutions, such as banks, mortgage companies, and investment firms, and thus used as a pretext for seizing control of the nations economy.
But what if Kellerman, in his relatively recent role as Chief Financial Officer, uncovered facts that might be quite discomforting to the men now in power? Would a President and a Congress so impervious to the rule of law, the Constitution, and the will of the American people think twice about arranging the "suicide" of one man who could possibly ruin their party?
Look, I'm not trying to make this into a Vincent Foster redux, OK? But there is a lot of people that may have wanted Mr. Kellerman dead, and most of them are Democrats. Let's have an open inquiry with a lot of transparency (with due respect to the family of the desceased, of course), so that no doubts remain, either way.
Rest in Peace, Mr, Kellerman.
