Accused Insider Trader Doug Whitman Made A Halfhearted Attempt At The Faux Sympathy Route In Pumping Depressed Informant For Inside Information

…Before losing his patience and wondering aloud what the hell she was good for if not bringing him hot tips.

FBI informant Roomy Khan, 53, told jury that she gleaned illegal tips on Polycom’s earnings from Sunil Bhalla, a former Polycom exec who was placed on leave in 2009. She then passed those tips to Whitman [Capital founder Doug Whitman] and a handful of other hedgie pals, including convicted Galleon Group co-founder Raj Rajaratnam and her bosses at Trivium Capital Management…“You know what would make you feel better?” Whitman asked Khan when she started complaining about her lot in life. “Calling Sunil and getting a good call on Polycom and being able to short it.” “Yeah, but I could go to jail for doing that, too,” Khan said. “[If] you’re not going to be a slimeball, what do I want to talk to you for,” Whitman said.

  27. I am confused. A 1988 video indicates Obama endorsing wealth redistribution. Why just isn’t this deemed of considerably greater relevance than Mitt Romney’s from the cuff remark? n nWe really should also scorn the disgraceful behavior of Bill Kristol. His attack on Romney is neither accurate nor reasonable. Kristol seems to would like to continue on staying invited to your ideal parties while in the Washington corridor.
