The culture of Wall Street has now completely engulfed the Fed: it's legal if you can get away with it.

For more than five years the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, Robert Kaplan, was trading like a hedge fund kingpin in "over $1 million" transactions in S&P 500 futures while refusing to follow the requirements of the Fed's financial disclosure form and list the specific dates of his purchases and sells so that the transactions could be examined for whether he had inside information from the Fed at the time.

(Goldman Sachs has been under Federal Reserve regulatory oversight since September 21, 2008 when it became a bank holding company in order to claim its share of the bailout money the Fed was secretly showering on the trading houses on Wall Street.)

Now it turns out that Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren's wife had a $150,000 to $500,000 "Secured Loan for Investment" with Citigroup's federally-insured bank, Citibank.
