Jon Corzine Receives Less Than Stellar Performance Review By House Subcommitee

House Republicans condemned former MF Global Holdings Ltd. Chief Executive Jon S. Corzine for making poor decisions that led to the firm’s collapse, but the lawmakers stopped short of saying anyone at the company broke the law by taking customer money. MF Global filed for bankruptcy a year ago, and the futures firm’s customers are still owed an estimated $1.6 billion. Mr. Corzine, a former Democratic senator and New Jersey governor, has faced widespread criticism but no criminal charges in connection with the collapse. “Choices made by Jon Corzine during his tenure as chairman and CEO sealed MF Global’s fate,” Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R., Texas), the chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, said in a statement. Mr. Neugebauer’s committee on Wednesday released excerpts of its report on the futures firm’s collapse. [WSJ]

    If Congress had a performance review, it would make Corzine look like a god among men.

    That's where I went wrong – I should have said I never intended to break any rules or any laws.

    In another life Corzine could definitely have played Billy Bob Thornton's character in Bad Santa…in another life my friend in another life…

    That's just like saying the buck stops with a CEO.
    In other news, it may get cold this winter.

    Stop doing these things: fucking up companies, betting your firm's existence on debt of imploding companies from your blackberry, overstocking the swag room with light-up glowing bouncy balls
    Start doing these things: start a garden, buy a condo in Naples, take an Alaskan glacier cruise next summer
