eBay Connections

By: Ina Steiner

eBay is about to get another friend in Washington - Goldman Sachs' Henry Paulson Jr.

"President Bush has lined up a Wall Street heavyweight as chief spokesman for the economy. He's Henry Paulson Jr., who has been running finance powerhouse Goldman Sachs - and as the designated next Treasury secretary, he'll have a big job ahead of him." Link.

eBay CEO Meg Whitman sat on the board of Goldman Sachs until 2002 (she stepped down after allegations that she, Pierre Omidyar and others "used special access to dot-com stock offerings for personal, rather than corporate, gain.") Link.

Interestingly (and to digress), according to wikipedia, Henry Paulson Jr served as Staff Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of Defense and then became Assistant to John Ehrlichman in the Nixon White House (1972-1973). Link.
