Jon Corzine (D-Goldman Sachs) Loses Re-election


Of their three most successful agents, two are now out of office

Henry Paulson

Jon Corzine

Tim Geithner

This is only a partial, limited victory. The whole point of “money-power transfers” is to give up some power in exchange for a lot of cash. Goldman Sachs is very effective at doing that. Worse, Tim Geithner is still Treasury Secretary, and there’s no gossip of Obama dismissing him. Still, I’m glad that the people of New Jersey ousted corrupt Wall Street banker (and TARP billionaire) Jon Corzine.
