1/24 Eliot Spitzer: Wall Street Fraud Enabler Lanny Breuer Steps Down

January 24, 2013

Former New York Governor, Eliot Spitzer, explained the new Frontline documentary The Untouchables, why the Obama Administration failed to prosecute fraud on Wall Street, why the Justice Department did not aggressively investigate fraud across the financial industry, the resignation of Lanny Breuer  why paying fines will not solve the problem of crime on Wall Street, Obama’s good choice for the new head of the SEC and the need for justice to be more creative and structural .

On The Better Half: Libertarian caller wanted to debate Reaganomics, new hilarious revelations from the Bachman campaign, will the Obama Administration get serious on emissions? And Catholic hospitalises think differently about abortion when money is on the line.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
