Realtor association manipulates members

Opinion: 'Paranoid' argument about banking rules designed to rally troops

Has the National Association of Realtors succumbed to paranoia over the prospect of national banks getting into the real estate business? Or has the association launched a deliberate campaign of misinformation to raise money for its lobbying activities?

A press release the 970,000-member organization released last week about federal banking laws appears to be so farfetched in its assertions that it suggests the folks at NAR have gone at least a little bit bonkers.
