IRA STOLL: Preet’s Revolving Door. “You don’t have to be a cynic to see a kind of parallel between the actions of the former prosecutors and the accusations they are making against those they are prosecuting. One group is making money by trading on their insider knowledge and unique relationships. And the other group… I’d love to see the Times (or someone else) do an info-graphic with photographs of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s nine prosecutors who have left the Wall Street task force, along with the firms they have left for, the annual profits per partner at those firms, and the names of some of their new clients. Maybe we’ll try it here.”
Another case for my revolving-door surtax.
