Corzine to testify before congress about MF Global

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) – After weeks of speculation about how more than a billion dollars in customer money went missing at MF Global, former CEO Jon Corzine will give his side of the story on Capitol Hill Thursday.

Corzine, also a former senator and governor of New Jersey, has been called to testify before the House Agriculture Committee as it investigates what went wrong at the brokerage firm, which went bankrupt in late October after disclosing bets on risky European debt that sparked a panic among investors.

    The only people who go jail for "ponzi' schemes are the Madoffs, the one who stole from the 1% instead of teh 99%.

    He probably was not aware how bad everything was!! So it is probably not his fault. And if it was, he certainly did
    not intend to do damage to anybody! He will be so full of crap.
    He really belongs in the GOP.

  8. GROVER NORQUIST IS A HERO TO ALL TAXPAYERS WHO ARE SICK OF PAYING MORE THAN THEIR SHARE TO FUND A CORRUPT SOCIALIST AGENDA

    Corzine was heralded by the Obama administration as a model of competence. Is it any wonder why Obama is wrecking the country with the help of crooks like Corzine? I guess he bet on somebody bailing out Greece and the rest of Europe. He'll blame the Germans no doubt. Or maybe that never fail stalwart of the libtard blame game, George Bush?

    Lock him up and throw away the key!

    This guy hired Teneo, a firm Bill Clinton is associated with, to polish his public persona...for about $50k per month. This is a big mess...I just remember all the corruption and graff assiciated with the clintons years ago and unfortunately they are still very much involved in world politics...no wonder the world is falling apart. But then, consider how many people hold bill and hillray up to be an asset to America...is there no hope?
