I hinted a bit at some claims by Sean Manhattan Transfer Maloney as being a part of a company that created 100’s of jobs.

Turns out this company is called Kiodex, Inc., a risk management firm.

Well yeah Risk management financial sector, I’m sure this is a great company, hiring great people, making great financial decisions for its investors as per their great owners like…Enron?

In fact it turns out that not only did Enron own part of his company, but Kiodex had a deal whereby Kiodex could market its service THROUGH Enron

Kiodex, Inc., a provider of web-based risk management and trading systems, today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to market the Kiodex Risk Workbench(SM) in conjunction with EnronOnline.

and Provide risk analysis to customers of Enron

EnronOnline customers will soon have a new risk analysis option when trading commodities online. The Enron site, which has transacted more than $485 billion in commodities products since its launch in November 1999, is teaming up with Kiodex to provide certain functionalities of its soon to be released Risk Workbench to EnronOnline users. Starting in the second half of this year, EnronOnline users will be able to calculate a basic set of risk management reports on transactions in natural gas, crude oil and refined petroleum products free of charge.

Hey I wonder how that “risk analysis” worked out for Enron customers?

Well a lot of people thought a lot of Enron, it’s not like the company was praising them a month before the company went kaput…oh wait

Just as Enron pioneered transparency in the energy markets, Enron can set the gold standard for disclosure of aggregate risk. (I know the other dealers will want to squirm their way out offollowing suit.) I have supreme confidence in Enron’s risk controls, and I’m thinking thatan independent measurement of this kind could dispel the market’s overblown and baseless fears.note full e-mail after the jump

Yup baseless fears about Enron, I wonder if the American people agree?

Well perhaps Mr. Maloney never saw this e-mail

well so maybe he did but remember what the White House said about Libya they get a ton of emails it’s not like they are going to see every single one of them.

Well I’m sure you that’s not going to sway the left. I’m sure Mr. Maloney is just as reliable on Jobs and Enron as the Obama administration is on Benghazi.

Me I say this:

Re-Elect Nan Hayworth to Congress in NY 18

She doesn’t think Enron is the model for job creation

I’m sitting right now in the Fishkill offices of Congresswomen Nan Hayworth waiting to hear back from campaign officials concerning her race here in NY-18.

Oddly enough I stayed at the local Days Inn under a mile from here

Thanks for the bed oh Tip Jar hitters

but when I found out Zilla of the Resistance who I hoped to visit with was in a local hospital I decided to swing up first to see her and how she is doing.

Zilla and her reader provided portable nebulizer

This was a bit of a shock to me but not as much of a shock to those who have falsely claimed that Zilla either was not sick or not even a woman

You know I’m always hoping for a tip jar hit (and I’ll ask for one below) but if you can only afford to give to one of us, I think Zilla could use it more.

From the Hospital I headed back to Fishkill and saw the Hayworth Office where they staff kindly allowed me some space to work:

and a little bit of Hayworth swag

As a rule I don’t take yard signs as they are most valuable in the district.

Hayworth’s district is small compared to some of the large one farther north:

But the fight is just as tough, the left has predictably been using their standard “War on Women” lines, the fact that Nan Hayworth is not only a woman but a medical doctor doesn’t seem to have caused any kind of ripple in this nonsense. It certainly doesn’t seem to faze the overwhelmingly female staff that I met in the office.

There is however a real interesting issue concerning this race. Nan’s opponent Sean Maloney who apparently is looking for a spot in the group Manhattan Transfer since he has done is best to try to convince the voters of the district that he has transferred himself to this district from Manhattan, but two days ago during the Debate on Tuesday bragged about being involved in a company that created 100’s of jobs.

It is an effort to change the complexion of a race that RCP has +7 for Hayworth at the moment but I suspect this boast might have costs as apparently this company has more to it than meets the eye, in fact it has more to it that some folks on the left might not want in front of the voters eyes…but that for my next post.

Let me leave you with this thought

Re-Elect Nan Hayworth to Congress in NY 18

Because you can’t have too many Republican Women Doctors in Washington

The only “war on women” is by the left against people like Nan who won’t blindly follow their lead. You can kick into her campaign here.

Remember this coverage is made possible by you. If you’d like to help pay for this trip and move that thermometer feel free to hit DaTipJar below and keep the gas in the car a few meals and a hotel room for at least one night.

Update: Dan Riehl is ill too, my best to him.
