    I’ve said it before, what he did was illegal. But his lawbreaking is less than a footnote in comparison to the lawbreaking at even ONE of the major banks…why did HE have to leave and not the geniuses in AIG/Citi/BofA/etc

    This guy was a shameless shake-down artist and hypocrite — his prosecutions as AG didn’t send anyone to jail, but squeezed hundreds of millions of $ from shareholders to NYState. Please don’t aid his attempted rehabilitation.

    this guy is the worst check out what they wrote about him on http://www.stonezone.com … Spitzer literally blackmailed Marsh and McLennan Insurance into taking Cherkasky from the bowels of Kroll Investigative Services, owned by M & M, and promoting him to Chief Executive Officer of M & M.
