Better a $1 billion crime than an ounce of cocaine

EWarrenMoneyLaundering“If you’re caught with an ounce of cocaine, the chances are good you’re going to go to jail. If it happens repeatedly, you may go to jail for the rest of your life.

“But evidently, if you launder nearly a billion dollars for drug cartels and violate our international sanctions, your company pays a fine and you go home and sleep in your own bed at night.

“I think that’s fundamentally wrong.”

— Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Banking Committee hearing, March 7, 2013
