Carlyle Group co-founder David Rubenstein dined with Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner last Thursday. He then joined ex-Treasury Secretary Larry Summers at the Nantucket Project. Convicted felon Jack Abramoff opened the session. Oddly, the last case involving Carlyle's bribing New York pension officials reached a verdict. Bloomberg reported:
Loglisci pleaded guilty to a single count of the criminal indictment involving the Carlyle/Riverstone Global Energy and Power Fund II.
Carlyle and Riverstone settled for a combined $70 million. Justice or "Just Us" PEU mavens? The panel suggests the latter.
