Artorius Castus

Friends of Artorius file with the SEC, demanding an investigation into SchumerGate

Posted in Uncategorized by Patrick Truax on August 21, 2008

Alleging misconduct, Artorius Castus and a number of private entities have filed papers with the SEC pushing for an investigation into the burgeoning IndyMac scandal. Next week, one these entities will be filing papers and producing evidence to the Department of Justice requesting an ivestigation into Schumer’s leaked memo.

It is our belief that Senator Schumer acted, at best, irresponsibly when he knowingly leaked a memo that was not for public consumption. Further, one of the private entities mentioned above, was already investigating a hedge fund manager with close ties the the Senator and who was a contributor to one of his campaigns.

If the hedge fund manager was given inside info, BEFORE the memo was leaked, and said hedge fund manager shorted Indy that week, (which he did) there are a lot of questions to be asked.

We believe that due to the seriousness of the charge, Schumer should step down until he is acquitted, has the case dismissed, or found guilty of the charges we allege.

We are alleging insider trading. (Giving info out to the hedge fund manager)
We are alleging improper handling of committee materials. (leaking them)
We are alleging Ethics violations. (The main charge-if he is found guilty of ethics violations, we at Friends of Artorius will demand his removal)

SEC case# 8082133112

Stay tuned to this blog for a look at the draft being prepared for the DOJ, which should be sometime early next week.
