    You just accused him of being corrupt with absolutely no evidence, while defending Obama on the basis of.... falsehoods.

    Just get the hell out of here and come back when you're willing to argue honestly.  Maybe Schneiderman is a sellout, if so you'll find out when he actually sells out.

    He has not done so yet in his career.

    Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.

      but...

      a pretty standard settlement, no wrongdoing, acknowledgment that they fully complied with the investigation, pretty lenient reform requirements(documentation of changes in business practices, not proof but written documentation), no jail time, and no restrictions on whether they could sell derivatives in the future.  Did I mention they didn't have to admit they did anything wrong.

      The document is a little wordy but the stuff you can understand you will be able to understand.

      It's not about being corrupt and it certainly isn't libel, it's him being a good lawyer and looking out for the best interests of the people he works for, which happens to be New Yorkers.

      He probably figured that after taking this weak deal that he can hold out for a larger settlement of which NY will get a larger portion if he goes it alone.

      It took me all of 10 minutes to find his most recent settlement which is barely a month old after three years of investigating...

      This investigation covered a period in which the wrongdoing took place over 10 years from 1996 - 2005 and they got $92M...

      I'm not going to ask you to remove the donut but you probably should.  That is unless you think that getting 92 mil for illegal activity over a ten year period, without admitting any wrongdoing or restricting their ability to sell derivatives is not selling out...

      Again not trying to spite the undeserving HR you gave me but just offering up the reality of major lawsuits against big business.  

      I'm not done yet either.

      you will see in the list of signatures that he had his assistant AG sign for him on this deal, which some of the same people that are commenting in this thread were lamenting in the second one I posted for you...

      Do you think I should give you an HR for accussing me of libel.
