On March 27 a retiring Securities and Exchange Commission prosecutor, James Kidney, said that his prosecutions of financial criminals at Goldman Sachs and other giant US banks were blocked by SEC political appointees who “were focused on getting high-paying jobs after their government service.� In a recent test to ascertain the responsiveness of members of Congress to monied interests in comparison to voters, two letters were sent to congressional offices. One letter asked for the representative to meet with community groups in his district.

James Kidney had worked for the Securities and Exchange Commission as a trial attorney since 1986, winning more than a half-dozen insider trading trials. executivebusiness.jpg But if anyone expected him to simply retire quietly with his nice pension - they were mistaken. According to Bloomberg News, the veteran lawyer used his retirement speech to blast the agency for its failure to take Wall Street to task for the 2008 mortgage crisis.

The SEC lacks the kind of enforcers who hold a firm belief in afflicting the powerful and comfortable, Kidney said. Regulators have become hyper-focused on policing the windows on the first floor, rather than taking action against those on the penthouse floors.

James Kidney, who joined the SEC in 1986 and retired this month, offered the critique in a speech at his goodbye party. . . .

The SEC has become "an agency that polices the broken windows on the street level and rarely goes to the penthouse floors," Kidney said, according to a copy of his remarks obtained by Bloomberg News. "On the rare occasions when enforcement does go to the penthouse, good manners are paramount. Tough enforcement, risky enforcement, is subject to extensive negotiation and weakening."
Kidney said his superiors were more focused on getting high-paying jobs after their government service than on bringing difficult cases. The agency's penalties, Kidney said, have become "at most a tollbooth on the bankster turnpike."
His March 27 remarks drew applause from the crowd of about 70 people, according to witnesses. In an interview, Kidney said he hadn't heard any blowback from SEC officials. . . .
His speech bemoaned the lack of SEC enforcers who "believe in afflicting the comfortable and powerful. . . .
In his speech, Kidney also hit the agency for using misleading statistics to showcase its enforcement efforts. The SEC should focus on the quality of its actions, rather than try to file as many as possible just to tout its record to lawmakers and the media, he said. "It is a cancer," Kidney said of the agency's use of numbers. "It should be changed."
Kidney said in the interview that he will always be an SEC loyalist and was trying to offer constructive criticism that could help the agency. He said he wasn't singling out any specific cases or officials in his comments. . . .
