    Amazing! A whole article about Stumpf's forced resignation without mentioning Elizabeth Warren once! It takes real skill to produce journalism this bad. Contratulations Mercopenguin.

    This disgraceful episode highlighted the complete lack of control by very senior management, only some of whom have 'paid the price' and had to leave with tons on money to help them cope. :o)

    The man needs to see some real prison time. Besides the fact that he was the “buck stops here” person in charge during a time a finance company seemingly condoned criminal behavior of those below him all in the name of growth and EPS and market share, he sold 61 million dollars worth of stock just weeks before they were hit with a 182 million fine and shares dropped 15% , yet he made 27 million on the transaction......insider trading.

    It's time the USA stop fining and start jailing the criminal actions of these ultra large greedy corporations. They want the rights of individuals, they can share the burdens of fucking up as well. The stories are endless of the nightmares these people are having regarding the accounts that they never knew they had......until the collectors came knocking.

    Stumpf, next stop, a SEC interview.

    As for Warren, I wonder how “Mr Market” would have fixed this without the CFPB?
