James Gorman Invites Morgan Stanley Employees To Help Educate, Elect Politicians Who Support The Bank’s Business Objectives

Email to all staff from the Morgan Stanley CEO sent today:

By law corporations cannot contribute directly to candidates for federal office. However, we are permitted to maintain a political action committee, MSPAC, which pools together employee contributions to support candidates. By banding together to participate in the political process, we can educate lawmakers as they prepare to draft new rules addressing taxes, wealth management and other critical financial services issues. MSPAC helps elect candidates who support our business objectives.

Suggested giving levels:

* Management committee $5,000
* Managing Director $2,500-5000
* Executive Director/SVP $1,000-2,500
* VP $500-1,000

    This e-mail is sent out at every bank. Never seen “Suggested giving level” tiers before, which must be harder to swallow after most at MS had their baby making parts stomped on at bonus time.

      Years ago at UBS they had “suggested giving levels” based upon your title for the PAC in addition to Wolfie walking down the rows and asking you to donate directly to his favorite candidates.

    Gorman will propose that there needs to be a bill passed that forbids bartering in public spaces.

    Its despicable behaviour. Utterly despicable for greedy banksters to attempt to influence election outcomes.

    Um, does it say which politicians support the business objectives? I need to know if my money is going to ESpitz or Grusso!

    It’s always nice to return the favor to those that you own…just to keep up appearances.

    By banding together to participate in the political process, we can “educate” lawmakers as they prepare to draft new rules addressing taxes, wealth management and other critical financial services issues.

    This “education” will of course include instruction in the use of Gimp masks, Ball-Gags, and the proper apllication of Anal Lube. Its also widely believed that wideclops will make a guest appearance in a leather catsuit and Fuck-me boots in the event that such encouragement is required to “get the juices flowing”

    In fact we should lobby politicians to start regulating companies more. These are lawless entities that are not government by any of the basic principles of modern society. MS is a cynical company, and another unfortunate turn. The tyranny and irresponsibility of companies like MS are despeakable.
