This Guy Is Gonna Get Assassinated
New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman has decided to go after Wall Street, for defrauding America and taking all our money. Unlike federal regulators, who have failed to offer more than a slap on the wrist, Schneiderman is putting the screws to Wall Street using a NY state law, the 1921 Martin Act.
The Martin Act is a more potent version of similar federal laws, and offers the best chance for Schneiderman to seek justice for America. That is why he will get assassinated.
The level of wealth at stake on Wall Street is so vast that assassinating a troublesome public servant is totally in the realm of possibility. And if not real assassination, then at least character assassination.
Here's hoping Schneiderman keeps his nose clean, his head down, and scores one for the good guys.
