Today marks an end to the long, funny, twisted tale of former car czar Steven Rattner — published author, tangler with the Securities and Exchange Commission and foister of terrible movie Chooch upon the world.
Former Obama administration auto industry czar Steven Rattner has agreed to pay $10 million to resolve two lawsuits by New York’s attorney general related to alleged kickbacks involving the state’s pension fund.
Rattner also agreed to be banned from appearing in any capacity before any public pension fund in New York for five years.
And so, for now at least, Rattner the big-foreheaded, bitchy un-friend of Andrew Cuomo makes an exit from the legal limelight. Onward we trek.
