A New York foreclosure law firm criticized for a 2010 Halloween party in which employees dressed as homeless people is attracting attention in Washington.
The ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform wrote Friday to the Steven J. Baum firm near Buffalo requesting records and documents relating to its foreclosure practices _ and its Halloween party.
Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings tells Baum pictures from the party published by The New York Times last week "demonstrate a culture of disdain for families suffering foreclosure and a disregard for the rule of law."
A Baum spokesman says he doesn't believe Baum has seen the letter. Baum has apologized for the party.
Cummings has been investigating potential abuses by law firms processing foreclosures.
