    go to competition.  And it's an incentive for him to seek a government position if he leaves Citigroup.  That couldn't be any clearer.

    Break it down.  Did he get actually get the payment?  When he left Citigroup he joined the administration as a Deputy Secretary of State.  About 18 months later he was shifted over to head OMB.  

    If he collected on this deal, he should be fired from the administration immediately.  If he didn't collect, I'd like to see some contrition. Otherwise he's out.
