Greenspan's Body Count: Freddie Mac CFO David Kellerman

Even during Digital Detox week, Alan Greenspan's killing spree continued. The latest victim was an executive and 16-year veteran of FrankenDodd's monster, Freddie Mac:
Law enforcement sources said David Kellermann, acting chief financial officer of mortgage company Freddie Mac, was found hanging in the basement of his Vienna, Va., home, dead from an apparent suicide early this morning.


Kellermann, 41, and a 16-year veteran of Freddie Mac, had been the company's CFO since September, after a government takeover of the company following the housing crisis.

There are many possible reasons for Kellerman's despair, all of them at least partially attributable to Greenspan's bubble. He had lost a lot of money in Freddie Mac stock. He was being questioned in the Freddie Mac accounting scandal. He was receiving an $800,000+ bonus from a failed company receiving a massive bailout from the taxpayers, an outrage that caused him to be hounded by reporters and to hire security for his family.

More interestingly, Kellerman may have been a good guy caught in the great government bank cover-up. Like Ken Lewis before him, Kellerman was apparently bullied by regulators who didn't want him to fulfill his fiduciary obligations to investors lest the facts be inconvenient for Dear Leader:
He and a group of company attorneys tussled with its regulator in early March as the firm prepared to file its quarterly earnings report with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The group insisted that Freddie Mac inform shareholders of the cost to the company of helping carry out the Obama administration's housing recovery plan. The regulator urged the company not to do so, according to several sources familiar with the matter. An FHFA official contested that account, saying the regulator did not oppose disclosure but how the information was portrayed in the filing.
Unlike the coward and fool Ken Lewis, Kellerman prevailed and told the truth.
