Corzine Kids Take Issue With Vanity Fair‘s Reporting On Mom, Dad, David Tepper

Back in February, Vanity Fair ran a piece on Jon Corzine in the wake of the whole MF Global situation, attempting to determine “what set Corzine on the road to ruin.” Figuring his personal life would be a good place to start, some story lines that were explored included JSC’s relationship with his children and his  divorce from Joanne, who he met in kindergarten and was married to for 33 years. The former was described as having become “increasingly distant” as Corzine made his way up the ranks at Goldman Sachs.  The latter “bitter,” which was not helped by the fact that, according to VF, Joanne had gotten “too close” to a onetime GS employee with whom Corzine had “bad blood,” named David Tepper. Jon’s children happened to catch the article and responded to it today in a letter to the editor, the short version of which is: “YOU KNOW NOTHING.” From the longer version:

Though we disagree with your analysis of [our father] and find your sources, often referred to as close friends, dubious at best, not to mention nameless, we understand judgments about public figures come with the territory.

What does not come with the territory in our minds are reckless allegations and assertions involving private personalities such as the ones you chose to propagate toward our mother, Joanne. Your portrayal of her is the opposite of who we know her to be. The subjective descriptions of her character based on quotes from anonymous “friends” is the elevation of gossip to legitimate reporting. The assertion regarding her becoming “close” to David Tepper is a blatant falsehood. She has never met or spoken to David Tepper.

    Yes, yes, yes, my father blew a hole in Goldman's balance sheet and forced them to postpone their IPO, yeah, sure, he torpedoed MF Global and now people are out of jobs and farmers can't plant their crops. BUT HOW DARE YOU, sir, imply that my mom has met David Tepper! Have you no shame?

  5. Strong sell says:

    Yea I think they confused who she had an affair with – it was someone way more important than Tepper.

      I love it when posts correcting grammar make a spelling goof. At least you copy-pasted the quoted part correctly.

  13. News at 5 says:

    In related news the homes of the three corzine children have just reportedly been demolished.

  14. Huésped says:

    Did JC and his wife really decide to do something as tasteless as use the same letter for the name of each kid?

  15. JZU says:

    if there will be another crisis, I'd like to see GS got burned.

    Why is this Jon Corzine motherfucker running free and wild while I’m in a pound-me-in-the-ass prison cell?
