Jon Corzine’s Weekend Just Got A Bump

The last several months have not been the best of times for Jon Stephen Corzine. His fund went down for the dirt nap. He was forced to shelve his dreams of becoming a count. He made the tearful decision to put his Hoboken hideaway on the market, probably to free up some cash should it become necessary to pay legal fees. And while some pissant MF Global clients have in fact served him with papers, today brings the joyous news that any sleepless nights spent worrying over doing time were all for naught.

“Sources tell the FOX Business Network the criminal case right now looks highly unlikely. The investigators are having a very difficult time proving criminal intent in the disclosure of the details leading up to the implosion of MF Global. They see a lot of sloppy bookwork. Sources say Jon Corzine’s firm wasn’t managed very well, but in terms of proving they intentionally misused that money, they are having a very tough time. They doubt a criminal case will result from this.”

The comeback continues, now ahead of schedule. Congratulatory flowers and candy can be sent here.

    Given where peripheral EU debt is now trading, it seems Jonny-boy was just a few months too early… oh well, I guess George Soros will be able to buy more homes to dangle in front of and then not give to his various girlfriends now

    What, "fund" ?

    He blew up a public compnay that had once been worth 3 bil, and had over 2500 employees in 4 continents.

    All the while leaving thousands of clients on the hook for a billion plus.

    I like that you're dumb enough to think this has anything to do with Obama, who likely doesn't give a shit if the Feds bring charges against JSC, who he's clearly already disassociated with.

    EARTH TO POWERS THAT BE: What is wrong with you people? Even out here in Trailer Park Land we recognize theft when we see it. Don't tell us Corzine isn't a criminal, you just seem more corrupt and incompetent.

  26. Posted by Mark P | February 24, 2012 at 11:57 PM

    Enough of this nonsense that the trades would have been good had they not been forcibly liquidated which implies that Corzine was indeed a smart trader just a little off with his timing.I could max out my marginable cash with a swing at the oil market on Monday morning lose everythingand be closed out by margin clerks very quickly if the market moved against me….would I be vindicated even slightly if the market moved back in my favor a short while later.

    dear trailer park land – we get that you're mad. but you don't want us to start criminalizing stupidity. if you run over the boss's dog with your backhoe, you maybe get fired, but you don't go to jail. and if jonny jersey had outright stolen that amount of money, he would have bought Corfu from Greece with enough scratch left over to live like the sultan of brunei there for the rest of his natural life.
