“I will indeed keep my home,” McGee said. “God’s got this.”

U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, on hand to support McGee, told the crowd he thinks Edward DeMarco, acting director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency that oversees Fannie Mae, should be fired for opposing principle reductions on mortgages.

McGee said she fell behind on her CitiMortgage Inc. mortgage after losing her job with Achieve Minneapolis in 2011. Until recently, she also ran a dessert business called Deep Roots Gourmet Desserts.

A Citigroup Inc. spokesman said he couldn’t discuss the matter without McGee’s permission, which McGee declined to give.

McGee wound up suing CitiMortgage and Fannie Mae, accusing them of wrongful foreclosure. Hennepin County District Judge Ann Alton said the two sides should keep trying to work it out, and set a settlement conference for May 14.
