Ouch, On Two Fronts

Via the Economist‘s Free Exchange blog:

UBS has warned members of its private banking team to steer clear of America. UBS bankers responsible for rich American clients have come under investigation by the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission based on suspicion that bankers may have assisted in tax evasion schemes.

This is especially interesting with news from Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo on the developing connection between McCain and one of his economic advisers, former Senator Gramm, who lobbied and worked for UBS. Many of his lobbying-related staff purges have appeared quite embarrassing. Is this the next?

Both of the party front runners continue to try really hard to get me (and the rest of the non-party ideologues out there) to vote for someone else.
