Remember how a couple of weeks ago, a handful of financial-services workers gathered a little-known, phallically named firm called John Thomas Financial, for a rally in support of “Restore Wall Street,” a website/movement the firm’s CEO, Thomas Belesis, had started in order to defend the good, moral character of people on the Street from the “repeating, relentless” attacks they had been unjustly subjected to by the government and populace? These men deeply resented the president’s use of the expression “fat-cat bankers,” because of all that it implied, they told the Times, and they wanted to set the record straight, to “polish Wall Street’s image,” and wipe away the tarnish it had taken on over the past two years. Well. Daily Intel friend Moe Tkacik looked into Belesis’s background, and found out exactly what kind of culture the CEO is so eager to restore.
