WASHINGTON, DC - DECEMBER 13: Commodity Futures Trading Commission Commissioner Jill Sommers is sworn in before testifying to the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee about the demise and bankruptcy of the global financial derivatives broker December 13, 2011 in Washington, DC. The committee heard testimony from government regulators, farmers, investors and former executives from MF Global about the demise of the investment firm, which was forced to declare bankruptcy on October 31 after its credit rankings were moved to junk status and it could not account for more than $1.2 billion of investors’ money.
