    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

SEC Charges Twitter's First Ponzi Scheme Operator Anthony Davian With Fraud

Once upon a time there was a Twitter-based, pump-and-dumping daytrading bucket shop posing as a "successful hedge fund manager" also known as Davian Letter/Davian Capital Advisors run by an Ohio gentleman known as Anthony Davian, which for reasons unknown even managed to run outside capital (somehow raking up to $1.5 million in idiot AUM, mostly courtesy of his very aggressive self promotion on Twitter using the @hedgieguy handle), and which didn't like Zero Hedge much.

(but that's ok because the feeling was mutual - we had advised the SEC in late 2009 that the Davian operation was nothing but a ponzi scheme).

A few years later, said outside capital is gone (with losses that could have been prevented had the SEC moved earlier) and moments ago, following a four year delay since our notice, the SEC has finally acted and charged Anthony Davian with fraud.
