Reports: Corzine Being Eyed As Possible Replacement For Geithner

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Former New Jersey governor Jon Corzine may be looking at a new job in Washington.

He’s reportedly being eyed as a possible replacement for Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.

That’s if Geithner leaves before the end of President Obama’s first term.

Corzine is former chairman of Goldman-Sachs and now works at the investment firm MF Global.

A spokesman for Corzine dismissed the talk of replacing Geithner, calling it “idle speculation.”

    Yeah this prick will work and save the day……this choice makes sense..the fool in the ivory tower almost bankrupted NJ when he was governor…raised the sales tax 1%, raised property taxes…was sucked off by the unions..
