Guilty as charged as with most politicians. It's incredible that more aren't hanged, or at least in prison. Especially Democrats.

Jon Corzine former co-chairman of Goldman Sachs and New Jersey's democratic governor, was charged with violating his legal obligations to diligently supervise. He was also charged with not acting in good faith as a "control person" at the firm.

Darn, he being prosecuted and he is a democrat?

That makes one more than George.

Of course, he's the one that allowed them to run wild in the first place.

Prison is what he deserves.
Chris Christie saved NJ, but in the process ruined the rest of the country by helping in the re-election of Obama. They both suck.

This piece of shit is going to walk. He ripped off his own depositors. Stole $1.6B from segregated accounts. And he is going to walk.

If I remember correctly, there is a law. And I may have to research the name of it. Can't remember the name of the law.

But it basically states that any financial institution that uses the funds within the institution to invest in government bond or sovereign bonds are not held liable to any losses that occur to those bonds.

Since MF Global was over leveraged by 40 to 1 to European debt markets (sovereign debt), then Corzine can rip off their own depositors without repercussions.

I remember reading up on it as soon as it was determined that Corzine stole the money. And I said at that point, based on the law, this piece of shit will walk.

Will anyone step up and demand the money and
he will go to prison for a very long time? Is
this just another thing we have to forget, as
those coming to light now ?
Another vacation plus the trips, he can't be bothered with? Bless you democrats, he can depend
on you to help the country forget or get the IRS
after them. And never forget, "its all Bush's
fault"! What a country of dead heads, how much
are you being paid? How much is our country worth
now?

Good! Now send him to prison and not one of the 'country club' institutions. Better yet, put him in the same cell with the infamous 'tossed salad man!' Economic crimes should be punished severely including the death penalty!

The Enron guy got 14 years - after having 10 years chopped off his sentence. Sound about right

<quoted text>Christie is a stinking RINO. Republican in name only. He was suck ing up to that piece of crap Bill Clinton too. He's probably going to turn democreep. He lost my vote when he permanently glued his lips to ObamaLamaDingDong's butt cheeks. Between McGreevy and Corzine and Norcross, NJ has taken a huge fall. Now this fat RINO is creeping me out too.
And a big fan(pun intended)of the Hollywood left too. Showed disrespect to our flag and our fallen hero veterans by ordering it lowered to half-staff in "honor" of the self destructing late drug addict Whitney Houston. What a boob.

Of course it is.

It usually is the criminals fault.

Bernie Madoff had to admit his indiscretions after almost 50 years.

If he didn't, he would still be in operation.

Corzine is broke, Obama figured he wasn't going to get another dime out of him, so ole Barack threw him to the wolves. This way Barack can look like he's doing something about Wall Street corruption.

It's not like the Obamatrons would understand any of it.

I may not be right about this, but I think its a civil litigation and there is no prision time even be considered.

And it was the investors who got screwed that pushed this civil action.

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-SI) yesterday, citing what he called discrepancies between the CFTC suit and Corzine’s testimony before Congress, called on AG Eric Holder to bring perjury charges against the disgraced CEO.

That would hopefully be prison.

What a moron - Eric Holder will have to recise himself because he is also a corrupt official.
Corzine better have a few extra million stashed for the DNC, or he may not be pardoned...
