Embattled former New Jersey Governor and MF Global Chief Jon Corzine STILL fundraising for President Obama

by Colonel on April 21, 2012

As PolitiColonel reported on January 31, 2012, Jon Corzine was listed as a fundraising bundler on President Obama’s re-election website for the Fourth Quarter of 2011. Corzine was also included in the campaign’s list of donors for the First Quarter of 2012.


“Barack Obama’s reelection campaign has released the most recent list of names of fundraising bundlers. On that list is Jon Corzine, the former governor of New Jersey and embattled money man, the former head of MF Global:

Corzine, according to the Obama campaign, has once again helped raise more than $500,000.

(He was likewise named a bundler in January, when the Obama campaign last released the names of their money men.)

“MF Global and its brokerage sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy after a $6.3 billion bet on the bonds of some of Europe’s most indebted nations prompted regulator concerns and a credit rating downgrade. Corzine quit MF Global Nov. 4,” Bloomberg reported.” — Daniel Halper, Copyright 2012 The Weekly Standard LLC
