Short Excerpt on Donaldson: Bill Donaldson was a former SEC Chairman who voted in favor of requiring private equity firms and hedge funds to register with the SEC for the first time. President Bush fired Donaldson and his vote was later overturned. However, these exact funds would trigger the financial crisis of 2008 less than 18 months later.
