Help push for CRIMINAL investigations of Goldman Sachs.

"The Great Vampire Squid Wrapped Around the Face of Humanity," a. k. a. Goldman Sachs

Hey, maybe all you hardcore law-and-order people who are so upset about immigrants coming here to wash our dishes and trim our lawns without proper documentation could also get a little bit excited about this: The SEC is now suing Goldman Sachs (memorably dubbed the Great Vampire Squid by Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi) for selling mortgages they knew were no good, hiding that fact from the public, and helping a key investor make BILLIONS of dollars by betting against those investments (while Goldman profited as well.)

Firebrand Ohio Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur aptly calls this “criminal fraud on a historic level,” which devastated millions of lives. The lawsuit is a good start, but Marcy is pushing for criminal investigations as well. Let her know we have her back, by signing this petition and affirming that “Nobody on Wall Street is Too Big For Jail.”

Meanwhile Senate Republicans bizarrely, and unanimously, continue to resist any financial reform at all, under the flimsiest pretexts, leaving the grownup party to go it alone once again, or risk yet another epic meltdown. Here, America’s most trusted news source explains some of the outrage more clearly than anyone else can, in a segment entitled “These F**kin’ Guys” :
