Green Party US Senate Candidate, Margaret Flowers, Endorses Plan to 
Prosecute Wall Street
Dr. Margaret Flowers, Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate in Maryland, has become the first candidate 
in the nation to endorse the action plan to end Wall Street corruption proposed by Bank Whistleblowers 
The group of financial fraud experts has drafted a 19-point plan that could be fully implemented within 60 
days without any action by Congress required. 
“The Bank Whistleblowers United plan comes at a critical time,” Flowers said. “The U.S. economy -- in 
fact the global economy, too -- is on shaky ground. Since the beginning of this year, the stock market has 
been faltering, the fundamentals of the economy are flawed and many economic experts say that a crash is 
coming, which could be more devastating than 2008. It is just a question of when.”
Flowers and Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein, who is the first presidential candidate to 
endorse the plan, make the case for the financial fraud experts proposal in an op-ed for TruthDig. They 
write, “To create a finance system that works for everyone, the next president needs to commit to taking 
on Wall Street, restoring the rule of law and rooting out corruption. We invite all presidential candidates 
to join us in endorsing the 19-point plan.”
Among the plan’s proposals are these:
 Restore the mandatory criminal referral process and Criminal Referral Coordinators at every 
financial regulatory agency
 The FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) will publicly terminate their “partnership” with the 
Mortgage Bankers Association
 Ban DOJ from making deferred prosecution agreements with elite white-collar criminals
 Reassign 500 FBI agents to the white-collar crime section
 Revamp the federal treatment of whistleblowers and False Claim Act complainants to encourage 
their efforts and use them to hold financial elites personally accountable

“The reality is that there are no ethics on Wall Street. Everyone is playing against each other and using 
whatever tools there are -- even some they do not fully understand -- to make money without regard to the 
impact they will have on others,” Flowers and Stein argue. “This behavior occurs because those involved 
are getting away with it and raking in millions, if not billions, of dollars as their reward. If fraud creates 
wealth, people will engage in it until they are stopped.” (The full op-ed can be found at
