Default Sandy Hook Shooting/ Libor Scandal????

Both fathers of the shooters were allegedly expected to testify in the Libor scandal that rocked the banking world in June.


The father of Newtown Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza is Peter Lanza who is a VP and Tax Director at GE Financial. The father of Aurora Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes is Robert Holmes, the lead scientist for the credit score company FICO. Both men were to testify before the US Sentate in the ongoing LIBOR scandal. The London Interbank Offered Rate, known as Libor, is the average interest rate at which banks can borrow from each other. 16 international banks have been implicated in this ongoing scandal, accused of rigging contracts worth trillions of dollars. HSBC has already been fined $1.9 billion and three of their low level traders arrested.

I'm not Trying to start a Conspiracy theory, But WOW. Is this interesting!!!

Spitzer was bagged because he pissed off the wrong people. When he called out Ken Langone about Dick Grasso's compensation package by going after the NYSE board he F'd himself.

Two days after Spitzer was busted Langone gave an interview on CNBC and said he knew somebody that was behind Elliot at the post office when he was buying the money orders...... Pretty much stating he hired a PI to bring the hypocritical A-hole down.

I saw a little about this earlier but didn't bring it up. I'm getting paranoid of being called paranoid
