Fraternity under fire for misogyny video
HARTFORD | Members of a Yale fraternity that counts both Bush presidents among its famous alumni and whose pledges were ordered to chant obscenities against women are getting a visit from concerned officials of the national organization.
Delta Kappa Epsilon, which was founded at Yale in 1855, has been under fire since amateur video appeared online of pledges marching through the New Haven campus on Oct. 13, chanting about women in the context of necrophilia and a specific sexual act.
Some students and members of the Yale Women’s Center board complained, and Delta Kappa Epsilon International Fraternity ordered the chapter to stop all pledge activities until further notice.
Although chapter leaders have apologized, the national organization said that it is sending its director to New Haven this weekend to “set forth a plan of action” for the chapter.
Foreclosure evictions halted by sheriff
CHICAGO | Foreclosure evictions are on hold again in the county that includes the city of Chicago.
Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart on Tuesday ordered deputies to stop carrying out mortgage foreclosure evictions after admissions by some leading lenders that employees had verified some foreclosures without even reading the documents.
Sheriff Dart, who is preparing a run for Chicago mayor, also halted foreclosure evictions two years ago after determining many people being forced from their homes had paid their rent and didn’t know their landlords were having financial problems.
He allowed the evictions to resume when procedures were put into place to protect renters.
Sheriff Dart’s current evictions moratorium is for foreclosures filed with his office by Bank of America, J.P Morgan Chase and GMAC/Ally Financial.
