As far as I am aware, Corzine was sullied by the LTCM issue while at GS.

However, there is no allegation that he broke any laws while at GS, and it’s possible that the “whisper” that I mentioned had more to do with conflicts between himself and Paulsen, who is a known moralist.

The actual issue of criminality was at MF Global, where (a) MF illegally used customer funds, and (b) Corzine definitely knew about it. That should have put him in some sort of jeopardy, because it was in his wheelhouse to put a stop to it, even if he didn’t himself order it.
