The recession is Frank's fault anyway for telling banks to lend money to people who couldn't pay it back. It really is that simple.

Awesome JOB TMZ! Exposing CORPORATE CRIMES! The past 10 years has been a decade of greed for the few at the top, those days hopefully are ova! This will teach cogress they have to be more specific on how they want taxpayers money spent because aparently the top of the food chain ceo's have no morals. Great expose TMZ. And they say you're just trashy news this time you out 60 minutes - 60 minutes!

Thank god someone is stepping up to this bank. This should never have happened. The should pay back the gov in all the money they rec'd from teh goverement and disburse it to the american people that are hurting.... That is unbelivable what a bank will do..

From what I've read, this bank was NOT in trouble. If the bank's executives ran the company well, and the company is profitable, why SHOULDN'T they sponsor a tournament if they want? The government didn't just give money to troubled banks.
