A WASP Name for a Jewish Firm

January 5th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

From The American Spectator on the firm that’s gotten Gov. Richardson in trouble:

Rubin founded the firm known for many years as Chambers, Dunhill, Rubin & Co, though there is no Chambers or Dunhill associated with the firm.

He had to rename it, though:

It appears that after a number of embarrassing investigations into alleged IRS investigations into back-door deals related to municipal bond financing in Atlanta and other localities in the late 1990s, the firm’s name was changed to CDR Financial.

    I wonder what the reaction would have been had Rubin been an Anglo named Blake and had called his company “Cohen, Goldberg and Blake.” There’d probably be a bit of a stir in the media!
