I wonder if Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders would not do well to hire Gilbert Chickli, a Tunesian convicted of money-laundering in France but living in Israel. Chickli is quite capable of putting flesh on the Sanders bone that the rich are in a wonderful position to take more than their fair share.Gilbert Chikli, 50, uses his phone at his home in Ashdod, Israel, Monday, March 28, 2016. Chikli, a visionary fraudster, ripped off some of the world's biggest corporations, and then laundered millions in China, which is serving as a massive money laundering machine for foreign criminals, an AP investigation has found.

"I understood that the bankers were never convicted," he said. "If the bankers were never convicted, then I needed to indirectly become an official banker."While laundering his money through China, Chickli became a multi-millionaire. Since he was only pretending to be an official banker, it seems fitting that he only pretend (if that) to be in jail.
A good AP article, if a bit wobbly: The Chinese aren't about to 'fess up any more than the bankers are.
