Does He Still Wonder Why People Assume He Worked for Goldman?
by

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner reportedly has to fend off the persistent popular misconception that he worked for Goldman Sachs. The New York Times even went through the trouble of trying to understand why that might be, in an article entitled, Geithner Haunted by a Goldman Past He Never Had.

Well the Times probably needs to look no further than today’s Huffington Post:

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has met more often with Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein than Congressional leaders, including the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader, according to his official calendar.

Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein has shown up on Geithner’s calendar at least 38 times through March 2010 since the Treasury Secretary took office in January 2009, three more entries than Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, 13 more than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and nearly four times as many as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader John Boehner combined, according to a copy of Geithner’s daily log recently published online by the Treasury Department. The imbalance is striking, considering that Geithner was heavily involved in financial regulatory reform legislation, which Congress was grappling with during the period covered by the calendar.
