That's at least the story the dildo collector told Bloomberg so okay, sure. Other things "The Godfather" (also known as "The Pope") got off his chest include:
* The fact that he is, as previously stated, a genius:
"I am amazingly brilliant analytically," says Gundlach, a wiry man whose short brown hair hugs his skull like a helmet.
* That the drugs, paraphernalia ("bearing evidence of recent use"), 12 sexual "devices," 34 "hardcore pornographic magazines," and 36 "hardcore sexually explicit DVDs and videocassettes" found in his former offices at TCW were nothing, and that attempts to use them in order to make him look bad were cheap, since it's not like he had them scattered about the place.
Gundlach says the drugs, porn and sex toys are relics from a closed chapter in his life and were stored in a crate. He says TCW disclosed their existence to damage his reputation with investors. "It's ancient stuff, like a box in an attic," he says. "But they figured, 'Let's try and destroy the guy and throw some slander and sleaze on him.'"
* And this:
"I'm the guy who makes it rain in the desert."
