Please Sign Petition re: Peter Sivere – George Demos
Posted by Larry Doyle on March 8, 2012 10:10 AM |
Aside from my hope that readers would care enough to share my writing and passion for the Sense on Cents virtues of truth, transparency, and integrity I do not believe I ask for much if anything from those who come here.
Well, today I am asking.
How might you help?
More than you may ever fully know or appreciate.
I first highlighted a case involving a compliance officer at JP Morgan Chase named Peter Sivere in January 2010. I wrote at the time, SEC IG Report: George Demos Pimped Peter Sivere,
Who is George Demos? A former enforcement lawyer in the New York office of the SEC, currently running for Congress from Long Island.
Who is Peter Sivere? A former compliance employee at JP Morgan.
Sivere crossed paths with Demos in 2004 while providing information related to an investigation of questionable mutual fund trading activity. In the midst of Sivere’s engagement with the SEC, his confidence was violated. I highlighted this reality the other day in writing, “The SEC Pimped Peter Sivere.”
Who at the SEC blew Sivere’s cover? Today we learn it was George Demos.
Despite the findings of then SEC Inspector General David Kotz, the court system has not supported Sivere’s case and call for real justice. This would not be the first time a court has stifled the truth. On that note, let’s bring Mr. Sivere’s case into the court of public opinion.
If you care about pursuing the truth and promoting transparency and integrity in our nation, please sign and share the petition linked below. I believe it will take you approximately 20-30 seconds.
If you have little to no interest in those virtues, then I am not sure why you would be reading Sense on Cents in the first place.
If you are George Demos and do not appreciate this petition, then you can compel your attorneys to release the details of the Inspector General’s report and that of the New York Committee on Professional Standards highlighting what truly transpired between you and Mr. Sivere back in 2004 and we can all get on with our lives.
The truth shall set US free.
Here is the petition addressed to the New York Committee on Professional Standards. .
Do your friends, family, and colleagues a favor and get them to do the same. Thanks!!
