    [How did Jon "I don't know where the 1.2 billion in customer funds went to" Corzine manage to avoid the typical perp walk for Wall Street scoundrels when MF Global went belly up? Big Democratic bundler and contributor? Well, you're partly right. Turns out that Mr Corzine also happens to be a customer of Eric Holder's law firm as well. You remember Mr Holder, don't you, the first Attorney general to be held in contempt of Congress in one Heck of a long time, the man who uttered the memorable phrase "To prosecute the Philadelphia New Black Panthers for voting rights violations would be demeaning to my people", the man who conspired with Barack Obama to flood Mexico with heavy firearms in the hope of provoking nationwide demand for the removal of firearms from civilian hands so only the Government and the crooks had guns, the man who raided Republican supporting Gibson Guitars for legally importing exotic hardwoods for use in their finished products, and who now busies himself with ordering investigations of prominent Republican campaign donors and contributors.]

    "Those wondering why the Department of Justice has refused to go after Jon Corzine for the vaporization of $1.6 billion in MF Global client funds need look no further than the documents uncovered by the Government Accountability Institute that reveal that the now-defunct MF Global was a client of Attorney General Eric Holder and Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer’s former law firm, Covington & Burling.

    There’s more.

    Records also reveal that MF Global’s trustee for the Chapter 11 bankruptcy retained as its general bankruptcy counsel Morrison & Foerester--the very law firm from which Associate Attorney General Tony West came to DOJ.

    And more."

    REVEALED: Corzine

    The same reason that Dianne Frankenstein, Tim Geithner, Tom Daschle, Chris Dodd, Harry Reid, Ted Kennedy, and many many others have skated:

    No more complicated than that.

    Yep. He's more concerned about protecting the unlicensed, illegal alien, drunk driver (or the Black Panter with a baton) than the millions of people who lost their savings to Corzine. Priorities. :mad:
