In case you missed it, last week, FOX Business’ Charlie Gasparino had the scoop that Senate Minority leader McConnell and John Cornyn recently met with Wall Street execs for a (heated) private meeting re: the financial reform bill being sponsored by Senator Chris Dodd and their complaints.
What’s interesting is that in President Obama’s Weekly Address this past Saturday, he referenced Gasparino’s exclusive. So it is no huge leap in logic to think that Gasparino is making an impact from K Street to Wall Street in the short time he has been at FOX Business turning out the Wall Street/DC-related scoops.

With all the Goldman (GS) vs SEC news this week and Obama’s speech today, we thought it might be of interest to include this item on the blog.
