Despite telling Morgan Stanley’s legal counsel that he and Anna Gristina/Scotland were merely “friends” as opposed to partners in a whorehouse that he was supposedly trying to help her line up financing for, broker David Walker, who has not been charged with anything, has been put on administrative leave “until the Manhattan district attorney’s office concludes its investigation.” [FBN, earlier]

    What I don't understand is why the dude said anything at all to the press. Oh what a tangled web…

    Knife fights, brothels, what's next at Morgan Stanley, a move into loan sharking?

    They have been running a brothel out of Minetta's for years. Just go into the men's bathroom and knock on the stall twice around midday. Otherwise just stand outside and smoke a cig and they will know what you want.

    No problem. If you need me I will be on E 78th St.

    If he worked for us, we'd securitize the coochie! In fact, a one hour CDO on the john actually paying makes sense too.

    Hmmm, in reviewing the company calendar it seems that Mr. Walker and every other male employee on this floor have scheduled twice weekly meetings with "Anna Scotland et al." How strange…

    RE: "Administrative leave"

    You did want us to prepare the standard exit package again, correct?

    We also await your instruction as to when we should update the Employee Handbook to add "knifing incidents" and "contact with purveyors of prostitutes" as firable offenses. Before or after the "administrative leave" ends?

    Please note Brothel Analysts are compensated by the hour, so not directly comparable to other depts.

    I think it will be found that this investment falls outside the Volcker Rule so they should be fine.

    "Also in July, Brett Henderson, a banking analyst based in Menlo Park, Calif., was fired for insider trading after leaving a list of his illegal trades on the office photocopier"

    Amazingly, the SEC wouldn't find this as evidence to prosecute in today’s world.

    I’d also like to mention that most of those who find themselves without health insurance usually are students, self-employed and people who are out of work. More than half of those uninsured are really under the age of Thirty five. They do not sense they are wanting health insurance as they are young and healthy. The income is frequently spent on houses, food, and also entertainment. A lot of people that do work either entire or in their free time are not provided insurance by means of their work so they get along without due to rising price of health insurance in america. Thanks for the tips you write about through this website.
