08/28/10 Dirty Deals Done Dirt Cheap In Greenwich: Billionaire's Throw Off Some Of There Chump Change To Kill Financial Reform

When Greenwich Resident Steven Cohen Says Frog Dan Debicella Had Better Jump. If Cohen Says Jump Debicella Had Better Ask,"How High?"

You Wont Read This In The Greenwich Time.....

Billionaires Say Forget About Financial Reform...

How much do you want to bet that Dan Debicella

is not going to be a big fan of financial reform?

Yesterday cash strapped congressional candidate wana-be Dan Debicella startedbegging for $35.000 to be donated in five days, so that the national republican party would give him money in his effort to replace Congressman Jim Himes.

But Who Is Going To Be The Source Of That Republican Funding That Shelton Resident Dan Debicella Is Despairingly Seeking?

It looks that some of that funding may have been arranged in Greenwich last Tuesday night.

Billionaire Steve Cohen just hosted a "Fancy Nancy" dinner party at his over-sized mansion in Greenwich to ensure his that his brand new favorite political party - The Republicans - win this November.

SAC Capital's Billionaire Hedge Fund Manager Steve Cohen recently made a big shift in donor allegiance from Democrat to Republican.

At a meeting at his house on Tuesday night, Cohen and other large Hedge Fund donors told Republican political party operatives that they did night like financial reform.

Cohen's SAC has switched sides over the financial reform issue in 2010 he gave 93% ($193,000 of $207,000)of his political donations to his new "no financial industry regulation" buddies in the republican party.

Previously, Mr. Cohen was part of the Dodd Squad.and gave 71% to the Democrats in 2008. Most of it went to Senator Chris Dood who was running for President and still is a ranking member of the Senate Banking Committee.

Ultra Secretive New York City Billionaire Bruce Kovner of Caxton Associates, Paul Singer of Elliott Management and Fox News Contributor Daniel Senor of Rosemont Capital all said that they will throw there money behind Republican or any other candidates who will stop regulation of the derivative and hedge fund industry.

Conn. man shocked over swearing kid video arrest
The Associated Press

A Connecticut man arrested on allegations he coached his 8-year-old neighbor to swear and posted a video of it on YouTube says he's shocked the child's family turned him in to police.

Thirty-four-year-old Bridgeport resident Josh Eastman said Thursday he didn't encourage the boy to spew profanity and recorded the clip because the boy developed a reputation in the neighborhood for swearing.

Police say Eastman was charged with impairing the morals of a child after the boy's mother alerted authorities of a clip titled "Swearing Kid." Eastman posted $2,500 bail and is due in court Sept. 8.

Eastman says his relatives and the boy's were friendly and he would have taken the video down if they had asked.

A police spokesman says the video has been removed.
