Add another alleged culprit to the cast of characters of our favorite insider trading scandal. It seems that Jersey City postal worker Jason Smith has been arrested for allegedly leaking confidential information about a grand jury's probe of accounting fraud at Bristol Meyers Squibb.
And to whom did Smith allegedly leak the info? None other than Eugene Plotkin—Harvard grad/competitive dance/indie filmmaker/novelist/Goldman analyst turned alleged crook.
So far we’ve got a shady connection to Eastern Europe, strippers, an Ivy league network of would be criminal masterminds, a Russian bathhouse. And now the postal service. This story keeps getting better.
