*Newton Co. Resident Moves Back Into Home After Wrongful Eviction, Faces
Imminent Second Eviction*
*WHO:* *Eddie Jones*, wrongfully evicted Newton Co. resident; *Occupy Our
Homes, Atlanta; **Cynthia McKinney*, former GA congresswoman
*WHAT*: Occupy Our Homes, Atlanta and former congresswoman Cynthia McKinney
to hold *press **conference* outside home of Eddie Jones, a Newton county
resident who resisted eviction by moving back into his home and who now
faces an imminent second eviction.
*WHEN: *Monday, May 21, at 10:30AM
*WHERE:* 75 Harvey Ave., Covington, Georgia 30016
*WHY: *Newton County resident Eddie Jones was illegally evicted on
Thursday, May 17th. Instead of just rolling over and letting his house get
taken away like so many other Americans, Eddie decided to fight back. Eddie
got a few friends together and did something very few have been brave
enough to do—*he moved back into his home.*
This past Saturday, Sheriff’s deputies showed up at Eddie’s home to evict
him. After allowing Eddie to show them paperwork that proves his
foreclosure--and therefore eviction--is wrongful, the officers decided to
leave and give Jones until Monday, May 21st, to vacate his home.
Occupy Our Homes, Atlanta plans to stand with Eddie Jones and Cynthia
McKinney as he faces possible eviction for the second time.
*More on Eddie Jones’s fight to save his home:*
Mr. Jones’s home was fraudulently obtained by Fannie Mae through MERS
(Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems), which was deemed by Courts
throughout the country as not having any ownership interest in any mortgage.
Mr. Jones has a case pending before Newton County Court, #2012978-5.
Mr. Jones has a copy of the MERS transfer of the property to the evicting
party, Fannie Mae, which is under a cloud of legal suspicion and may not
have standing in Georgia Courts.
Mr. Jones suffered from a car wreck in 2008 and missed three payments on
his mortgage, which caused him to spiral into foreclosure. He applied for
the Making Home Affordable program and was accepted. After making three
payments in full and on time Mr. Jones was mysteriously dropped from the
program. His home was then transferred over the internet via MERS from
Litton Loan Servicing to Fannie Mae.
Mr. Jones owes nothing on his loan, his deed is free and clear.
