A US bank chairman has pleaded guilty to using bailout money given to rescue his firm to buy himself a luxury home.

Darryl Woods used $381,000 (£245,000) of the $1m given to his Mainstreet Bank to buy the Florida waterfront property.

I don't blame him, I blame the bailout. He should still be prosecuted.

He got money from the bail out and quickly injected that money into the faltering real estate sector and you want his head?!

I think something similar happened in the UK but nobody was prosecuted. Was asked to leave however.

From what I can recall as well, there was a lot of arm twisting to get banks that didn't need the bailout, to take bailout money.

They will improson him because he did not complete the paperwork. Otherwise it would have been legal (not to be confused with right).
