Bennett Ignored Problems

Merrill Cook's "My View" (Sept. 28) was very informative. It's interesting that Bob Bennett couldn't support a proposal seven or more years ago, which might have averted the current Wall Street disaster, when problems at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were first coming to light.

It's also interesting that Bennett, third only to Democrats Chris Dodd and Barack Obama, received campaign contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It seems not to matter who we send to Washington to represent us.
