Partying at the Newseum

A few weeks ago, we joined over 100 of our friends and supporters at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., to celebrate the release of David Einhorn’s new book, “Fooling Some of the People All of the Time: A Long Short Story.”

Einhorn, who’s the president of Greenlight Capital, has spent years investigating Wall Street corruption. In his latest book, Einhorn paints a disturbing picture of a financial system that has been plagued by fraudulent corporate accounting practices, lax oversight by government regulators, and other factors that have contributed to the recent economic meltdown. The book has received rave reviews from the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and others.

Einhorn has decided to give POGO a portion of the proceeds from the book. He notes that “the book shows, if nothing else, that we need better investigative journalism and effective government watch dogs.”

The party was a smashing success! Thanks to everyone who joined us, and we hope you had as much fun as we did. Click on the picture below to see our slide show from the event. (Sometimes the Simpleviewer takes a couple of seconds to load.)
