Spitzer conspiracy theorist
Edited on Wed Dec-10-08 12:15 PM by Jake3463
Just want to say your slightly more sane than Birth Certificate Conspiracy nuts.

I worked with Money Laundering mitigation efforts for 2 years for a financial services company. Spitzer's transactions would have been forwarded to a government agency as a due course of business. Being the Govenor of any state would result in a federal investigation. First there was the SARs than there was the wiretap. That makes sense. That is logical.

Elliot resigned on March 12, 2008. Any supposed article he was going to right would not have changed the course of the financial crisis. If it had any effect it would have just moved the timing of the stock market crash up 6 months. It would have not prevented anyone from getting a subprime mortgage or defaulting. It would have not prevented this crisis in anyway.

I'm one of those who believe Bush, Cheney, et al. are incompetent and evil. I don't give them the credit of being all knowing. An article on the looming subprime crisis by the Govenor of NY is not the type of thing I think they would pick up on or even worry about. They'd just deny it and move on. Spitzer was a respected figure but it wasn't like it was written by Greenspan. I'm sure they were happy to nail Spitzer but I believe the guy handed himself over to them on a golden platter because of his financial transactions.

Spitzer and Blagojevich did this to themselves.

1. Kicked and recommended.
As I've been trying to tell people here for years, the world is not one big conspiracy.
