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:
