<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Exclusive: <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Goldman Sachs VP</span> Changed His Name, Now Advances Goldman Lobbying Interests As Top Staffer To Darrell Issa

Has <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA)</span> turned the House Oversight Committee into a bank lobbying firm with the power to subpoena and pressure government regulators? ThinkProgress has found that a <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Goldman Sachs vice president</span> changed his name, then later went to work for Issa to coordinate his effort <span style='font-size: 14pt'>to thwart regulations that affect Goldman Sachs’ bottom line.</span>

In July, Issa sent a letter to top government regulators demanding that they back off and provide more justification for new margin requirements for financial firms dealing in derivatives. A standard practice on Capitol Hill is to end a letter to a government agency with contact information for the congressional staffer responsible for working on the issue for the committee. In most cases, the contact staffer is the one who actually writes such letters. With this in mind, it is important to note that the Issa letter ended with contact information for Peter Haller, a staffer hired this year to work for Issa on the Oversight Committee.

Issa’s demand to regulators is exactly what banks have been wishing for. Indeed, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Goldman Sachs has spent millions this year trying to slow down the implementation of the new rules.</span> In the letter, Issa explicitly mentions that the new derivative regulations might hurt brokers “such as<span style='font-size: 14pt'> Goldman Sachs.”</span>

Haller, as he is now known, went by the name Peter Simonyi until three years ago. Simonyi adopted his mother’s maiden name Haller in 2008 shortly <span style='font-size: 14pt'>after leaving Goldman Sachs as a vice president</span> of the bank’s commodity compliance group. <span style='font-size: 17pt'>In a few short years, Haller went from being in charge of dealing with regulators for Goldman Sachs to working for Congress in a position where he made official demands from regulators overseeing his old firm.</span>

It’s not the first time Haller has worked the revolving door <span style='font-size: 14pt'>to help out Goldman Sachs.</span> According to a report by the nonpartisan Project on Government Oversight, Haller — then known as Peter Simonyi — <span style='font-size: 14pt'>left the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in 2005 to work for Goldman Sachs, then quickly began lobbying his colleagues at the SEC on behalf of his new firm.</span> At one point, Haller was requiring to issue a letter to the SEC stating that he did not violate ethics rules and the SEC agreed. A brief timeline of Haller’s work history underscores the ethical issues raised with Issa’s latest letter to bank regulators:

– After completing his law degree in 2000, Haller was employed by Federal Energy Regulatory Commission as an economist, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>and later with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the Office of Enforcement.

– In April of 2005, Haller resigned from the SEC to take a job with Goldman Sachs. Although he was not a registered lobbyist, he soon began lobbying the SEC on compliance issues on behalf of Goldman Sachs.

– In 2006, Haller left Goldman Sachs, according to a Goldman official who spoke to ThinkProgress.

– In 2008, he took a job with the law/lobbying firm Brickfield Burchette Ritts & Stone.</span>

– <span style='font-size: 23pt'>In January of 2011, Haller was hired to work for Issa on the Oversight Committee.</span> Under the supervision of Haller, Issa sent a letter dated July 22, 2011 to bank regulators (including the heads of the Federal Reserve, FDIC, FCA, CFTC, FHFA, and Office of Comptroller) demanding documents to justify new Dodd-Frank mandated rules on margin requirements for banks dealing in the multi-trillion dollar OTC derivatives market, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>like Goldman Sachs.</span> </div></div>

Its been shown that MASSIVE FRAUD took place during the housing bubble and the subsequent collapse. Not one top Exec or one CEO is in prison, how come?

So, where is your condemnation of the Obama regime for hiring the myriad G-S employees that they have, many much higher ranking than this minnow?

Although you are accurate in seeing that crimes have been committed, your hyper-partisanship prevents you from seeing the gangster government in it's full scope.

Yep, says it all. All of those righties have strange looking eyes.

His eyes remind me of Walker's eyes! Shifty!!!


The crooks in this country pull the Repiglican's strings, and block the economic recovery, block fail safe regulatory tightening we need, and Repigs filibustered and blocked tighter regulations on Wall St., in the filthy irresponsible Oil and Coal industry, greedy pharmaceuticals, and always in bed with the Middle East "Death to Americans" cabal.

We'll never get out of this Repiglican Mess that Bush's failed Repiglican policies, created, including their extreme deregulatory policies, no oversight, gross negligence, which allowed the filthy rich corrupt Wall St. Pigs, to rob our country, and get away with it, unless we get rid of the Repiglicans, obviously!

Repiglicans have blocked every major action we've needed to take, including the positions we need to fill, even in the Fed, which is the only way out of this. Bernake needs to be more aggressive, not less aggressive, as the stupid REpigs want...

Idiotic statements like those being made by Repiglican Presidential contenders, are proof of their corruption and overall ignorance of Econoic matters.

Bruce Bartlett called Perry an idiot this morning on CNN. Never before have I seen so many incompetent and corrupt people on the political scene, as we have on the right, at this time.

Someone needs to cut off Norquist's tongue!
