On behalf of customers of MF Global, five Congressmen from Illinois sent a letter to SEC Chairman Mary Shapiro and CFTC Chairman Gary Gensler in support of the immediate release of 100% of customer funds frozen in the MF Global bankruptcy. The letter states that "every effort should be made to reach this goal, including the liquidation of MF Global's holding company assets for the benefit of its commodity customers." It details their view that the CFTC should advise the Court that the failure of MF Global to maintain segregation should not be permitted to "force a haircut on MF Global's customers."
The Congressman who signed on to the letter are listed below. Please send them a quick Tweet or post a brief note on their Facebook pages to let them know the CCC's membership is greatful for their assistance.
