Jon Corzine Raised $500,000 for Obama

According the Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign website, Jon Corzine of Hoboken, New Jersey raised at least $500,000 for the president’s reelection effort.

Corzine, of course, has most recently been in the news for being on the wrong side of a $6.3 billion bet as head of MF Global. “MF Global filed for bankruptcy on October 31, after $6.3 billion in risky bets on European sovereign debt spooked investors and an effort to sell the company failed,” Reuters reported. “Investigators are searching for as much as $1.2 billion in missing customer money, which regulators said the company may have diverted for its own needs.”
