This overblown sentence from Dealbook ignores the real problem. $1 billion was transferred out of MF GLobal in its final days. CEO Corzine failed to prevent it so the feds have sued. Corzine now faces his “biggest fight”? I think not. He’ll send in the lawyers, end up paying a fine, and not go to prison. If we had a functioning legal system, Corzine would be been indicted on criminal charges.
Jon S. Corzine, no stranger to bare-knuckle brawls after spending nearly 40 years on Wall Street and in New Jersey politics, now faces the biggest fight of his career: a showdown with the United States government.
