  •  He has other suicides notches on his belt (29+ / 0-)

    From Wiki:

    Heymann led the investigation of computer hacker Albert Gonzalez-associates Jonathan James and Stephen Watt for computer intrusion and identity theft from the TJX Companies.[4][5][6] Watt was successfully convicted.[7] James, still an alleged "unindicted co-conspirator,"[4] committed suicide[6][7] two weeks after the U.S. Secret Service raided his house.[4][6] In his suicide note, Jonathan James wrote that his suicide was in response to the investigation of a "crime he says he did not commit."[4][8] Gonzalez was never charged in the TJX case.[4]
    Someone needs to help this guy find a new career.  Flipping burgers, maybe.  With that level of enthusiasm, they should put him in charge of going after Wall Street crooks.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.
