Stanford Financial's analysts regularly appear as guests on CNBC and other business television outlets. The firm has also become a fixture in South Florida, where it's the major corporate sponsor of the Heat, Miami's professional basketball team
I wonder how many more are in the woodwork.

Wow - I guess the SEC enforcement is back up and running again finally!

Check out this Floyd Norris article about how Cox slowed down/limited SEC enforcement actions during his tenure: Unleashing Enforcement - Floyd Norris Blog - NYTimes.com

Somebody needs to hire someone to find this loser and admister a little on-site, instant justice-- someone like the guy in the recent movie Taken. How bad was he?

I just went to IMDB to check this movie out. Sounds like a winner! I've been missing Charles Bronson for years, this might ease my pain.

I wonder where he is hiding out. Maybe they should check Madoff's place in NYC; he seems to have a lot of room there and could probably use the company.

Remember the fellow from the Boston area who testified about Madoff and his efforts to get the attention of the SEC? He said he had a list of others for them to take a look at. I wonder...
