WEIRD BUT TRUE
By LUKAS I. ALPERT and LORENA MONGELLI, Post Wire Services
A state senator from Queens deliberately went into mortgage foreclosure to see what the experience was like - and complained that her bank was at fault for being slow in telling her she might lose her Jamaica home.
Sen. Shirley Huntley said she stopped making $2,000-a-month payments in November to verify the mortgage horror stories her constituents told her.
She said she'd planned to pay up when faced with a deadline.
Huntley said that her family was served with foreclosure papers on Feb. 7 and that she agreed to pay all arrears and fees by the March 11 deadline.
I think Shirley and Helen share the same hairdresser (and brain).
