Heh heh, the rich flip on each other just like street thugs. Let the dog fight amongst them & their attorneys continue! Greed, greed, greed.

One percenters like this caused the recession that our country is still escaping. Throw the book at all of them. Make them pay for the economic devastation that they have caused across the country.

Don't know why the newspapers rarely print the mug shots of one-percenters when they get busted. Here is his photo from an old interview: Web Link
If you see him on the street, you can tell him what you think of his crimes against our country.

> The charges are based on claims made by Roomy Khan

Seems Ms. Khan has been involved with the FBI and "insider trading" for some time now--

How many hedge fund managers did not make their profits from insider trading? probably not many!

Big Al, I know your post wsa removed, but I appreciated the link.

Toady, there are a lot of PA residents who are NOT the 1% or even close. PA has many, many renters, there are those that no matter how hard & long they work don't even approach the 1%. While it's home to some famously monied people & quietly monied people, it's always had residents of varying incomes.

I will happily follow this case to see what happens.
