    The SEC’s investigation was conducted by Stacy Bogert, Pamela Nolan, Alec Koch, and Yuri Zelinsky. The SEC’s litigation will be led by James Kidney.


    Mary Schapiro must be soooo proud. The administration has certainly found a real go getter and leader bound and determined to keep the freeh market freeh.


    That MFG hearing today was as painful to view as my recent root canal. The fix is in and there appears to be nothing justice can do about it.
