New Chief of Staff: Made Money Off Mortgage Defaults
quote:

From 2006-2008, Jack Lew was chief operating officer of Citibank's alternative investments division. And it was his division that made billions of dollars betting "U.S. homeowners would not be able to make their mortgage payments," as the Huffington Post reported.


quote:

The piece also reported: “Lew made millions at Citi, including a bonus of nearly $950,000 in 2009 just a few months after the bank received billions of dollars in a taxpayer rescue, according to disclosure forms filed with the federal government. The bank is still partly owned by taxpayers.”

Conservatives should have no problem with someone making money legally. Free market and all.

To me, it just goes to show that both political parties are loaded with sleezebags.

It is worth noting that there are plenty of teachers, cops, firefighters, etc. who are depending on their pension fund managers to get as much ROI as they can.

In other words, the guy was doing his job.
