Jon Corzine recently lost the gubernatorial race in New Jersey. He is also a very wealthy Wall Streeter that is a former disciple of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS). He is also a democrat that is very friendly with the Obama administration. And now the strange rumor mill is getting stranger….
Charlie Gasparino on CNBC just threw out the idea that Corzine could potentially be in the running for the CEO role at Bank of America Corp. (NYSE: BAC) as the replacement for Ken Lewis….. after he touted his book again. Gasparino noted that he asked Bank of America about this and the ‘rumor’ was not denied but was given a ‘no comment’ answer which Gasparino expanded upon.
In this new world under the ‘new normal’ it seems that anything is possible.
