Skip to comments.Unbelievable: Jon Corzine still bundling mega-bucks for Obama’s campaign

The information's hiding in plain sight but it’s still a nifty catch by the Standard’s Daniel Halper. You know why? Because the idea that Jon Corzine is still raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for The One is so insane and implausible, virtually no one would have thought to check. Of course that's not happening. Of course.
He's in the $500,000+ club for the first quarter of this year, the most elite group there is among O's cash cows. You know what else happened during that quarter? News broke that more than a billion dollars in MF Global client funds had apparently been “vaporized” in the firm’s collapse, with investigators clueless as to where the money might have gone. As recently as last month, new evidence emerged pointing to Corzine’s direct involvement in using clients’ cash to cover the firm’s debts. And yet, presumably, he was squeezing his rich friends for dough for Obama the whole time. Ace asks a good question: “Why is a man under investigation by a government agency permitted to raise money for the man who controls that agency?” Wouldn’t be the first time Corzine’s used his political leverage to personal advantage.
If you missed it a few days ago, read Ed’s post on Patrick Kennedy claiming that the White House rewards its rich donors with certain quid pro quos. Can’t wait to see what Jon Corzine gets in return for his extreme diligence on behalf of the “Not a Republican” reelection effort. Exit question: Does Team O understand that transparency is supposed to act as a deterrent to impropriety or the appearance of impropriety? They love to pat themselves on the back for voluntarily disclosing the names of their bundlers, but the point of disclosure is that it dissuades you, at least in theory, from dealing with cretins lest you be scrutinized for it. Where’s the dissuasion, guys?
thanks for severely depressing me this am
Our friends at Hot Air have been afflicted with the superlative adjective disease. How could this possibly be thought of as “Unbelievable”?
In his situation, Corzine has to keep greasing the wheels of the mighty. They always ask, “What have you done for me lately?”
and did they ever find the centi-millions that disappeared from MF Global?
You can bet the house that some of the STOLEN MF Global $1.5 Biion is in OweBama’s secret slush fund. And I’m not even a rocket scientist.
Better than going to jail.
He is doing it right out in the open, The Democrats are accepting the money,right out in the open, and they are laughing at it all the way to the bank.
The Republicans in Congress who are supposed to be our watchdogs are asleep on the job and expecting us to vote for them.So they can live in the manner in which they have become accustomed to.
why is he not in jail yet?
I find nothing “unbelievable” about criminals still working for hussein. It happens everyday and WITH the kings approval.
“Unxexpected” is reserved for Rooters and AP unemployment headlines.
Because he's part of the "club"
