Steve Rattner Has Never Seen Chooch


Is Steven Rattner seriously telling us he never even saw the movie whose distribution he helped arrange in order to get the contract to manage the state pension fund? That he didn’t personally chortle at the jokes about tasers, prison sex, and fat sex made in the story of a journey four lovable mooks from Queens take to Mexico before encouraging a “conversation” between the brother of the retirement fund’s chief investment officer and the production company his fund controlled? Yes he is. “Never saw it,” Rattner told the Journal. Now that is an ethical issue. [WSJ]
