The Bad

  • Mary Jo White’s deposition in the SEC Inspector General’s investigation of the John Mack case  gives us dispiriting insight into how she may approach her work as SEC chair. She believes that the government should bring cases – but only “to a point.” Taibbi also reveals “legal leprechaun tricks” that White performed as a white-collar defense attorney at Debevoise & Plimpton. Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone
