I am heartened that America still has a chance to eradicate the corrosive and corruptible elements that have thrived within our financial regulatory system when I learn that there are still people who care enough to do the right thing. Who is one of those people?

Former assistant inspector general of the SEC David Weber. Today is his day and America should feel very good about that.   (more…)
