Perry's Restaurant in Odenton is scheduled to host meetings featuring two top members of the Democratic party in the coming weeks.

The restaurant on Annapolis Road will host the on Feb. 16, when Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot will be the guest speaker. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., with Franchot's remarks set for 7 p.m.

According to an email sent to supporters, those wishing to attend the happy hour should contact Bev Ruppersberger at 410-252-2505 or email bev@dutchforcongress.com.

I've never been to Perry's, but I've gone to the good Congressman with a wealth of concrete evidence (not he said/she said allegations) that Bank of America has persistently violated at least three statutes of the U.S. Code (12 USC 2605, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act [RESPA], and the Fair Credit Reporting Act). He could have intervened in my behalf (as I begged him--Timothy Geithner--Barack Obama--and the OCC, FTC, and CFPB, among others) to do, when I nearly lost my home after eight full months of unemployment between February 2010 and February 2011--but his office didn't lift a finger to help me--not even to the extent of advising me as to how I should proceed. He wouldn't get my vote now if he paid off my mortgage for me now--and neither will any of the others.

He was counsel for one of BofA's predecessors, MBNA, who perhaps not coincidentally set up shop in Baltimore County after he became executive there. BofA continues to be one of his top campaign contributors. Does it make a little more sense now? :-(
