Washington, D.C.,, May 15, 2009: “Pity those poor bank executives, used to looting everything in sight because their man was in the White House, now reduced to penury because the evil socialist coon is taking over their cash cows. They wail to Fat Limbaugh and anyone on the hill that remembers their earlier generosity. Yes, Virginia, Santa may be stuck in your chimney an making a terrible smell in the living room but the president is taking over the crooked banks and cleaning up the Augean stables from generations of impacted filth. Good for him. They’ll beg the CIA to do a Kennedy on him but my bet is that it won’t work. Still, Bernie Madoff, who hid is looted money safely in Israel for his children to spend later on, is not the only slime ball on the court. I would hazard a guess that at least 90% if the so-called “hedge funds” are nothing but Ponzi scams. If you have money in one, take it out…unless it’s all in a bank in Lichtenstein. Well, Berine’s co-religionists had a real run on our money and now they either flee to Aruba to join the legions of crooked mortgage brokers or take up residence in some cushy Federal jail. They should just hang them up in a tree somewhere and take all their money, their planes, their yachts, their 30,000 square foot mansions and give the money back to the victims. This would never happen under Bush, of course, but it will under Obama. Look for more Republican howls of ‘Socialist!’ in the near future.”
Califorina hedge fund manager arrested
May 16, 2009
LOS ANGELES – A Beverly Hills hedge fund manager was arrested Friday on a charge he bilked investors out of $44.3 million, including $5 million he lost playing poker, the U.S. attorney's office said.
Bradley L. Ruderman, 46, surrendered to FBI agents after being named in a wire fraud complaint. He was later released on $500,000 bond.
The government alleges he spent at least $8.7 million of investor money on personal expenses including a summer rental of a Malibu beach home and two Porsches. He admitted in an FBI interview that he lost $5.2 million of investor money in poker games held in a Beverly Hills luxury hotel suite, the U.S. attorney's office said in a statement.
A message seeking comment was left at the offices of Ruderman's attorney, James D. Riddet of Santa Ana.
A federal judge last month froze Ruderman's assets after the Securities and Exchange Commission filed a complaint alleging he falsely told investors his hedge funds had hundreds of millions of dollars in assets.
Ruderman's scheme lasted from 2002 until its collapse this year, according to the wire fraud complaint.
He allegedly raised $44.3 million from 22 investors with claims of annual returns as high as 60 percent.
Many of the victims named in the complaint were Ruderman's own relatives, U.S. attorney's spokesman Thom Mrozek said.
The complaint said he lied about profits, repeatedly sent false account statements to investors and reported he had $206 million in funds under management after actually losing $3 million in 2008 and beginning 2009 with a net value of only $588,246.
If convicted, Ruderman faces a maximum of 20 years in federal prison.
