Amidst the news Jon Corzine will apparently avoid criminal charges over MF Global are his future plans: They may include starting a hedge fund. With no firm to run over the past months, he has been spending his time trading his own considerable wealth. Anthony Scaramucci - who worked under Corzine at Goldman - wants in.

    Amazing that anyone can preside over what happened in MF Global and not have legal problems because of it.

    Stories like this is what infuriates the 99%. Corzine literally lost billions of others peoples money and a year later wants to start a new hedge fund. I can still see his face testifying that he had no idea what happened to the money. Now he wants folks to give him money to manage and charge then high fees! Not me.

    "With no firm to run over the past months, he has been spending his time bundling tons of money for the president's re-election campaign. Sources were quick to point out that this is completely, totally, you can trust us on this unrelated to Mr. Corzine not facing criminal charges."

     

    There. Fixed it for you.

    The really, really sad commentary here is that guys like Scaramucci would think nothing wrong with supporting a guy who just stole a billion dollars.

     

    If you cant understand how morally wrong that is, maybe you need to do a little soul searching.

     

    Even more so for Scaramucci.

     

    Very sad.....karma is hell....wouldn't it be something if Scaramucci ends up getting his pocket picked by Corzine too?

    If anyone still lived under the impression that we have "justice for all", then this should put it to rest.

     

    We are a banana republic. When I was growing up we used to laugh at what went on in banana republics - today the same things exist here.
