Um, Arianna, Jon Corzine is a Democrat who provided economic advice to the Obama administration

In the Huffington Post‘s article on the “smoking gun” e-mail providing evidence of a former Democratic New Jersey Governor’s malfeasance in the collapse of MF Global, Marcy Gordon neglected to mention the partisan affiliation of Mr. Corzine:

A former MF Global executive appears to contradict testimony from Jon Corzine, saying the former senator and New Jersey governor ordered the transfer of $200 million last fall out of a customer account days before the brokerage firm collapsed, according to an email obtained by congressional investigators.

Edith O’Brien, MF Global’s former assistant treasurer, says Corzine ordered the money shifted to one of the firm’s bank accounts overseas on Oct. 28 to cover an overdraft, according to a memo that cited the email.

Ms. Gordon also neglects to mention that President Barack had traveled to New Jersey to campaign for said Democrat.  Jim Hoft does the work that Ms. Gordon.  You can bet she would have reported a campaign stop George W. Bush made to shore up a Republican politician, who, in the private sector, was reported to be involved in some shady activities.

Jim Hoft has provided some details about Mr. Corzine and the administration that Ms. Gordon neglected to provide, linking this video embedded below where Vice President acknowledges how, during the transition, the Obama team called Corzine for economic advice:

This isn’t the first time Mrs. Huffington’s publication left out Mr. Corzine’s political affiliation.



  1. You can bet the Obama administration called Corzine for economic advice.

    Corzine believes in the fascist economic model: the tight integration of Big Government, Big Banking and Big Labor (in that order of seniority), at the expense of everyone and everything else, including the Rule of Law. That’s Obama. (By the way, did you know that Obamacare effectively voids hundreds of years of contract law?)

  2. Where’s the 24/7 press coverage to stir up the democrat mob demanding Corzine be hanged?

  3. Yeah, you’d think “the 99%” (Occupy) would care about this one.

    Oh wait, they also want to see (real) free enterprise destroyed and their fellow Americans ripped off… just for their own benefit. They approve of Corzine’s spirit and methods, just not that he was trying to benefit him (rather than them) at the time.

  4. I have read that what the Tea Party and the OWS movement have in common is their opposition to Crony Capitalism. Where they differ is that the Tea Party hates Cronyism, and the OWS hates Capitalism.

  5. And of course, she also fails to mention that Corzine was Baraka’s go-to guy to solicit money from Wall Street and that Baraka was meeting with Corzine as MF Global was in the process of imploding.

    But we also have to remember that Baraka and the Obama Media apparatus say it’s OK for Corzine to steal because he’s a “proud progressive”.

    You could not find a better example of Baraka Obama’s hypocrisy and bigotry, or the Obama Party’s addiction to cronyism, than Jon Corzine. Baraka and the Obama Party scream about consumer protections, then steal billions of dollars from consumers.
