President Obama is reportedly likely to choose former U.S. attorney Mary Jo White as his nomination for head of the SEC. If White is confirmed, she would be the first prosecutor to head the agency, perhaps giving it a tougher edge. White has won convictions against Ramzi Ahmed Yousef for bombing the World Trade Center and mafia boss John Gotti, although she's not known for expertise in securities law.
