Rattner gets his deal without having to admit any wrongdoing, Cuomo is “infuriated.”
Gosh and golly gee, I DO hope none of the evidence from the investigation LEAKS out to the media. If it should, Andrew might want to think about checking into the solitary ward of a maximum security prison for his safety. I hear Sing Sing is pretty in the Spring.

Gosh, another TurboTax problem?
From the article:I don't know. Sounds like he's establishing his credentials to join "the most ethical administration in history."
He and his wife, Maureen White, also established themselves as power brokers in the national Democratic Party.

If anything, paying millions in fines makes him overqualified in the current administration.
