The Obama campaign is running a television ad showing three convicted finance executives who are supposed to represent the greed of Republican party, because Presidential nominee Mitt Romney wants to cut the subsidy that goes towards the Public Broadcasting Service, which airs the children’s television program “Sesame Street.
However, all the individuals mentioned in the ad:Ken Lay, Dennis Kozlowski, and Bernie Madoff were all at least indicted and or prosecuted for their crimes by the George W. Bush Justice Department:
Ken Lay indicted 2004
Dennis Kozlowski convicted 2005
Bernie Madoff arrested and charged December 2008
Is this all the Obama campaign really has? More importantly, if the Obama campaign is so concerned about Wall St. shadiness, then why are they so quiet about MF Global’s Jon Corzine?
