Corzine Approved MF Global Transfer

More bad new for Jon Corzine, former governor of New Jersey and chief executive officer of collapsed bank MF Global. According to company treasurer Edith O’Brien, Corzine ordered that $200 million be taken from a client account to cover an overdrawn account with JPMorgan three days before the company collapsed. O’Brien, who is slated to testify next week to the House Financial Services subcommittee on the problems at MF Global, said Corzine gave the order in an email on Oct. 28. Her version of events directly contradicts Corzine’s, who said he never misused client funds.
