Spitzer To Holder: Prosecute Goldman Sachs Or Resign

Sounds like Spitzer's on a campaign to push hard for the prosecution of Goldman Sachs. This, from last week: Eliot Spitzer challenges investment banker Goldman Sachs: "Sue me. I don't care. You lied to the public, you should be prosecuted"

Sounds like Spitzer's on a campaign to push hard for the prosecution of Goldman Sachs. This, from last week:

Eliot Spitzer challenges investment banker Goldman Sachs: "Sue me. I don't care. You lied to the public, you should be prosecuted" during an interview with Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate subcommittee charged with investigating the causes of the financial crisis.

Here's a transcript of what Spitzer said:

SPITZER: Senator, I'm going to take a leap. I'm going to say it out loud. Very directly.

Goldman Sachs, you lied to the public. You lied to your clients. You've got a problem. You come on the show. Sue me. I don't care. You lied to the public, you should be prosecuted.

I'm going to say it right now. And I hope they are.

Listen to Spitzer challenge Holder in his appearance on Anderson Cooper, then go read this William Greider article on "How Wall Street Crooks Get Out of Jail Free".

Then read this Politico piece on how conservative members of Congress are more upset that Holder is refusing to devote DoJ resources to prosecuting something much more important: online pornography.
