Eliot Spitzer

Finding corporate venality all over, New York's muckraking Democratic attorney general had another banner year. After forcing Big Pharma to reveal unfavorable clinical studies, he exposed apparent bid rigging and kickback schemes in the insurance industry, sending CEOs scurrying yet again.
