THIS HAS GOT TO BE A JOKE. It's not. HORRIBLE!

"You don't want to mess with Mary Jo," Obama said, adding that he was confident White would "complete the task of reforming Wall Street and making sure that American investors are better informed and better protected going forward."

So let's see how this works. This is the same "supposed impartial" lawyer in Bountygate who was absolutely in the pocket of the NFL and now she gets appointed to one of the most powerful positions in the world.

Do you feel as confident as me that she will be owned by the big Wall Street banks? Justice :no:

Mary Jo White has record of tough prosecutions

THIS IS INSANE.
- The Hargrove voice statement
- And nearly everything she backed as gospel got thrown out by Tags as "Insufficient Evidence."

And now she going to run the US Securities and Exchange Commission. The only thing she has shown us is that she can be bought. Has Wall Street ever bought government officials before? That's like asking if the Mafia ever paid-off cops???????

Yeah this is nothing surprising. The SEC is a joke. It's a revolving door of people who have worked in the banks that they are supposed to regulate. Once they have done their time in the SEC a high paying position will be waiting for them at some private firm as a thank you for looking the other way while every rule in the book was broken. It's the worlds most powerful good ol' boys club.

To be fair, saying she was bought or paid off (whatever that means - she was indeed a private attorney hired by the league to "review its case") isn't really the right concept IMO. All we know is that the league showed her its version of the evidence and she said it was solid.

We all know the league was manipulating evidence and connecting dots that weren't really there. But she wasn't privy to the rebuttal or any of the challenges that came later in the process (because the players were smart enough to wait until the deck wasn't completely stacked against them).

I don't like her either. But her record seems to evidence a tough prosecutor rather than someone for sale to the highest bidder. In bountygate, the league was her client - she had no obligation of objectivity to the players, even if the league tried to make it seem like she was quasi-judicial.

Of course the prosecutor is going to say that the Commissioner was justified in his prosecution. Those are birds of a feather and not necessarily because one was bought.

Not surprising on another front as well...
