Corzine the Destructor
Has anyone else noticed what a serial failure this guy is?
1998 - Loses piles of money for Goldman Sachs and gets forced out by Hank Paulson.
2000 - Buys a Senate seat for $65 million. Highlight of Senate career: engineering John Edwards as John Kerry's running mate.
2002 - Wife dumps him for cheating.
2003 - Decides it would be a great idea, as a public official, to shack up with Carla Katz, who happens to run a municipal employee union with whom he negotiates. Gives her major dough, forgives loans.
2005 - Jim McGreevey resigns in disgrace, Corzine buys Governorship. Raises already sky-high New Jersey taxes, escalates government spending, trashes economy.
2009 - Loses governorship to unknown lawyer.
2010 - Named CEO of MF Global, a money manager. Decides it would be a good idea to get into leveraged bond trading, stock drops 80%, Moody's cuts ratings. Rumor has it he's out.
What will Jon Corzine trash next?
