The Corzines Went Château Shopping Right Before MF Global Went Under
Atlantic Wire ^ | Jan 5 2012 | ALEXANDER ABAD-SANTOS

Even though we haven't quite found MF Global's $1.2 billion that went missing, Vanity Fair did find out he and his wife Sharon were talking about a château they were about to buy in the South of France. The preview of the February issue's Corzine exposé is up online--complete with cocktail party anecdotes from their 1 percent-sounding acquaintances. If you ask us, this haughty "Not Cap Ferrat" insult is the best (and worst) part:

“It’s not in Cap Ferrat,” one person recalls Elghanayan saying, perhaps to mitigate the extravagance. “To buy any decent château is at least a couple of million euros,” explains another person who was at the party, “and that is before the renovation with the air-conditioning and the new kitchen. Sharon was very excited. She said she was flying down there on Monday morning.”

These are the Wall Street pals of Obammie. Let’s hope the GOP won’t forget to remind the voters.

A new verb has been added to the language. corzine v. to trust your money to a prominent person and find suddenly it has disappeared. eg “Oh no! Look at the financial statement. We have been corzined!”

Perfectly good word. So go ahead and add it to urbandictionary.com.

I’d start looking for the missing dough in the basement and the mattresses of the Château. Renovated? Look in the walls!

RC, I’m losing heart. I’m beginning to think that there are the ‘Democrats’ (Commies)....and the RNC are just the ‘Democrat Lites’.

I do think it’s definitely time to retain Corzine’s passport and everything else.

The moment it starts to look bad for him, he’ll be gone by any method imaginable.

He won’t settle in France. Just vacation there, because they really know how to tax the rich. And a million euro place is a real shack. It would be much more.

Actually I’m surprised that Corzine and his family haven’t fled yet. Dubai would be a good “refugee” for them.

I was so angry when I read this until I got to the end and found out that the Chateau is not in Cap Ferrat.

If it’s not in Cap Ferrat it’s ok then, nothing to see here, you may all return to what you were doing.
