What about “Chooch” ?

April 17, 2009

Steven Rattner, the leader of the Obama administration’s auto task force, has surfaced in the investigation of a kickback scheme at New York state’s pension fund.

In March, Henry Morris, who was the fund-raiser for former comptroller Alan Hevesi, and David Loglisci, who was the state pension fund’s top investment officer, were charged with securities fraud, bribery, money laundering and other crimes in a 123-count indictment.

NY Attorney General Andrew Cuomo charged that Loglisci accepted sham “investments” for the production by his brother of a low-budget movie, “Chooch.” And for your viewing pleasure, peHUB’s Erin Griffith has tracked down the film’s trailer.

The film review site RottenTomatoes.com called it “an absolute chore to sit through.” You be the judge:
