CFTC’s Exhaustive Internal Review To Determine Whether Or Not Jon Corzine And Chairman Gary Gensler Had A “Too Close” Relationship Reveals Corzine Was The Kind Of Guy To Make A Big Show Of Signing Up For Athletic Events And Coming Up With An Excuse Not To Do Them At The Last Minute, While Gensler Was The Kind To Smirk And Passive Aggressively Ask If You Were “Actually” Going To Do It This Time

The memo even explored why Gensler ran the New York Marathon with Corzine’s number more than 20 years ago. According to the report, Gensler learned that Corzine had registered to run the 1991 race. Gensler asked Corzine’s secretary if Corzine was actually going to run. Several weeks later, the secretary informed Gensler that Corzine had decided against running and wouldn’t need the number, the memo said. The secretary gave the number to Gensler. [Bloomberg via DI]

    If only Corzine decided to run in 1991. Then may'be he'd be in the olympics right now instead of blowing up MF Global.

    Corzine looks like that alky hobo in Florida who had his face eaten off.

      This comment sounds like it was left by an "alky" hobo…

      Ugh, I didn't think this through – I realize now it looks like I'm feeding that stupid zombie meme (which I honestly was not trying to do – just trying to make a silly joke, for which I would give myself a gentleman's D+ or maybe a C-).

      I shall banish myself from posting for 60 days and engage in Dalio-esque self-reflection as punishment.

    Being a little too cavalier about whether a number was Corzine's and whether or not it could be used by someone else… hmm… what does this remind me of…
