Now if Corzine had produced a Broadway musical guaranteed to be a flop but wasn’t, instead of just embezzling $1.6 bil, he’d be breaking rocks in the big house.
Corzine was born in central Illinois to Nancy June (née Hedrick) and Roy Allen Corzine. He grew up on a small family farm in Willey Station, Illinois and near Taylorville. After completing high school at Taylorville High School, where he had been the football quarterback and basketball captain, he attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, and graduated in 1969, earning Phi Beta Kappa honors. While in college, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserve and served from 1969 until 1975, attaining the rank of sergeant. In 1970 he enrolled in the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, from which he received a Master of Business Administration degree in 1973.
Hmmm...... Chicago student, worked at Goldman Sachs, run a complany into the ground. And now protected by the feds.
