Preet Bharara is one of those “not yet 50” wunderkinds
who always appears in motion.
He was appointed by Obama to US Attorney for the Southern District and he has not rested since.
He’s a Springsteen fan,
but he has also prosecuted almost 100 Wall Street execs.
More importantly, he has personally brought down the
Speaker of the New York State Assembly, Sheldon Silver.
And also Majority Leader of the State Senate,
both on corruption.
He went to Columbia, worked for Chuck Schumer and then showed his courage by bringing criminal cases against the Gambino and Colombo New York crime families.
Last week he turned his attention to a 5 million dollar fund from companies doing business with the city.
And the receiver of all that unaccounted money?
I’m not saying de Blasio is stupid.
I’m saying he’s had poor luck so far
