Crimefighter Mary Jo White to
patrol Street as SEC head

New York Post, by Kaja Whitehouse

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/25/2013 11:42:04 AM

The regulatory forecast for Wall Street is in — the cold snap’s over and it’s going to be hot with an increased chance of enforcement actions. That outlook popped up on the radar screens yesterday after President Obama nominated Mary Jo White, a tough-as-nails former prosecutor, as the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission. If confirmed by the Senate, White, who wiped the Teflon from John Gotti by winning a murder conviction against the mobster, would be the first prosecutor to lead the securities regulator. “We need to keep going after irresponsible behavior in the financial industry

Some people whose opinion I respect and who have worked with her, have a lot of confidence in White.

A fine, no nonsense choice. It only took Obama four years to make a nomination I can endorse.

She looks like Moe of the Three Stooges. With no sense of humor, probably.

I thought the Gotti conviction was obtained by the US Atty in Brooklyn. Whatever the case, she has earned respect as a prosecutor. The SEC performs a valuable function in preventing fraud but in the process, imposes a lot of burdens on businesses.

From everything I´ve ever heard, an excellent choice. Maybe the only good choice zero has ever made.

As long as she goes after actual fraud and cheating, I am cool with her. Don´t forget the prosecutors who have gone after people just to advance their careers, when said victims of their attacks had done nothing illegal.

And given that this is coming from Obama, I am very uneasy.

Very selective in her prosecutions it seems. If you´re a union thug or dem, you will likely be safe. Republican financiers should watch their backs, however. Just another partisan hack and Obama flack, I suggest, and, like Elizabeth Warren, a legal gun for hire when a buck is to be made.

The government is quite good when going after ´organized crime´.

They do not brook any competition when it comes to organized crime.

I understand that going to law school makes people good at acting ugly, but....how is it possible that it seems to make people LOOK so small and ugly ????

And look at how well she handled the MArc Rich pardon ivestigation.......why people are still in jail over that one..........oh, wait a minute, no one was EVER held accountable for that.

Very simple: If a democrat is proposed/elected/nominated/elevated by democrats, they are dangerous to the Republic.

I´ll bet a million billion trillion skillion bazillion dollars you never hear the name ´Corzine´ outa her.

She was nominated by Obama! Does anyone really think she is going to get to the bottom of anything?? She might hound a few Wall St fatcat`s but beyond that forget it.

Sorry to post again on this thread. I do not know Mary Jo White, but I do know a few things about her. She and her husband have lots of money between them. She does not need to pad a retirement account that is probably already huge (and probably well-sheltered from taxes). And why do we really care what she does at the SEC? The SEC goes after civil violations. Madoff would be a free man if it were just up to the SEC. It´s still the US attorney´s job to prosecute crimes. She may do more to implicate Dodd Frank but so would anyone Obama appointed. She´s probably not a bad choice--she is certainly familiar with the corporate world, since she and her husband have spent most of their lives, and made most of their wealth, representing corporate clients.

#10 is on it! Known as Mary Jo Molasses, she never gets around to jailing D´rats. W, for reasons known only himsel and Boy Rove put her in charge of investigating the Criminal Clintons for the "Pay for Pardons"
scheme. Some will remember De Knees Rich giving $400,000 to the Clinton Library. And Slick pardoned her husband who was convicted of tax fraud and owed $100 million. Molasses White said ...move on!

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

TOPEKA, Kan. — If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was

Is Harry Reid unpopular enough to become an election issue for races nationally? A GOP incumbent in North Carolina is trying to find out. Stuart Rothenberg reports in his Roll Call blog: The 30-second spot, titled “Meddling,” accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., of “trying to fool Republican voters, meddling in our primary to get a weak opponent for Kay Hagan.” (Video) The North Carolina Senate race is rated Toss-up/Tilt Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call, in part, because of uncertainty in the GOP primary.

Some advice for Democratic candidates from consultants: Don´t use the word "recovery" in your speeches. Associated Press: Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
