Well concerning Reskin I can only relate what I was told. I wasn't there so I can't comment as if it was an absolute but there is a lot to support the contention. 'Least James helped put Gordon away. Rumor has it there was lots of bad blood between the two anyways.
As far as " half ass stomped " IMHO and is reasonably assumed the Feds brass ring was Gordon. Can't blame them one bit for that. Another sworn " officer of the court " Offill class type of attorney, or so it seems eh'. But my contention here is if you sleep with dogs you wake up with fleas. Reskin obviously gave the Feds the hammer they needed otherwise there would not have been a plea deal and he'd still have his license and would not be employeed in the capacity he is now at what I assume would be somewhat less lucrative. Well either way he gets to spend Christmas with his family and that's a good thing.
Won't get into it now due to the hour but I do think our Gov. has some liability in this mess also. This and hundreds of others of a like nature. Not per'se the DOJ but congress and the top people in the SEC. Frank/Hobbs might help things a little but it still doesn't address the root flaw in the system.
Hope we communicate again and sorry Josh isn't home for the Holidays. You and yours have the best Holidays you can either way.
