Bart Chilton To Take Lead Of MF Global Investigation As Jill Sommers Leaves
Bart. Good old Bart. Just like he took out JP Morgan for their manipulation of the silver price, SV is sure that he will really take it to MF Global.
- Republican Jill Sommers plans to resign from US Commodity Futures Trading Commission after the first quarter of this year.
- She said: “I feel like we’re kind of at the end of the major rulemaking for Dodd-Frank,” said Sommers, 44. “My intention is not to leave until after this last group of rules. It’s not effective immediately. I suspect I’ll leave sometime after the first quarter.”
- Sommers has been commissioner since August 2007 and was the senior member overseeing the MF Global investigation after Gary Gensler recused himself due to conflict of interest.
- Bart Chilton is expected to take over her responsibilities overseeing the response to MF Global once she leaves.
