How David Rubenstein is Like Eliot Spitzer

Why would you invest money with the Carlyle Group? Is it because of their "disciplined approach" to investing? Their "conservative and disciplined investment philosophy"? Their "conservative investment philosophy and disciplined investment process"? Well, Carlyle co-founder David Rubenstein has some news for you, about the deals he was doing over the past few years:

“I analogize it to sex,” Rubenstein said. “You realize there were certain things you shouldn’t do, but the urge is there and you can’t resist.”

That’s not funny, David. Your limited partners paid you billions of dollars precisely because you claimed to be able to resist following your penis rather than your brain. Have you thought about giving any of that money back?
