“Crazy” Bart’s Irrational Tirades Against Those with Legitimate Complaints About the CFTC’s Rulemaking Process Continue… |.

Fun blog post about Bart Chilton, CFTC Commissioner by Noah Melnick of Linklaters in New York. His personal blog, nothing to do with his employer!

I like this quote from Bart the best:

Is that speculation excessive speculation and is it impacting prices? I think so and so do many members of the U.S. House and Senate. In fact, in the last two weeks, we have received numerous letters from dozens of members of the House and Senate—those that actually voted for the reform law—telling us to get with it and implement position limits. Earlier this week, we received a letter from 23 Senators and 45 Members of the House. They were clear: get on with position limits already. We gave you that tool. Use it now.
