Exactly how was Spitzer caught? It had something to do with a PEP List… or the Politically Exposed Persons list. You’ll have to listen to the whole Morning Edition/NPR story all by yourself to get to the serious bank transaction monitoring goodies, but be on the lookout for the part where the person from the bank talks about how politicians in particular, of any flavor, are flagged for extra-special surveillance with the PEP List.
You can see a screen-shot sample PEP List here. Or call and order your own at: 877-922-5757. Literally hundreds of thousands of “politically exposed persons” to choose from! Call now. Operators are standing by. You could very well be on it. And your family too!
