Ha, saw that and kept it on to see how long before it would be pulled.  Then they put some talking Weiner dog on...  Was good timing, because Mike Darda is on over at Bloomberg.

Schwab to face ARS lawsuit. New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is expected to file suit against Charles Schwab (SCHW) as soon as today, alleging the firm engaged in civil fraud in the marketing and sale of auction-rate securities. Schwab continues to deny any wrongdoing and said Cuomo's "approach is inconsistent with the law, basic fairness, and common sense."

Schwab brokers are whores like the rest of the Street.   The conflicts abound.

Shoveling that crap out to unsuspecting investors deserves some face time with Mr. Cuomo's minions.

maybe not, maybe the powers in Washington told Cuomo to take some big fish down, because they feel the size of the outrage ( i dunno, im 6000 miles away ) that is brewing among common folks. i have a strange feeling ( based on 0 evidence ) that this would not end just with a fine.

you may be right cheeky....i'm in ny and cuomo is looking to move up big time.  he is following spitzer's script exactly and at this point i predict cuomo will beat patterson for the ny governor's spot.  it can only help cuomo to squeeze some real blood out of cheat street.

I doubt he's following Spitzer's script "exactly".

Agreed.  Best for satellite radio; didn't know it was being simulcast until I flipped on Bloomy TV today and they were running it (maybe some error on their reg TV).

Wow...Poor Chuck...If I were Chuck, I would fight back and disclose worse offenders, starting with the specialist and MM at Nasdaq.

Being that Chuck base is West...taking them down would cause unemployment to hit 20% in a burning state.

I was fresh out of school and I recall sitting in for morning conference calls/research discussion and I was amazed at the kinds of questions being asked.  The brokers who were 'perky' were the ones who just didn't know anything and wanted to absorb it all, whereas the guys half asleep or staring at the ceiling only came for the donuts/pastries.

I came to learn that the most knowledgable brokers didn't bother with the meetings at all.

In my newbie eyes, something was wrong when the director of research was scared/undecided (when spoken to personally) yet kept offering overly bullish sentiment virtually every morning.
