Wanted to post the video from my visit with Don Imus this morning, in which we talk about the “Real Housewives of Wall Street” story.

Dahlberg, for those of you who’ve seen the movie All The President’s Men, was the Minnesota chair of Nixon’s Committee to Re-Elect the President, whose check to CREEP ended up in the account of one of the Watergate Burglars. Anyway, Dahlberg is on the list of TALF investors. This was actually reported by the New York Times last year, but like a lot of the TALF stories, the news received little fanfare.
