Mt. Sunapee leaseholder Och-Ziff is in the news again

You can’t make this stuff up. The headline reads:

Och-Ziff So Messed Up Top Exec. Is Fleeing To The Comparative Calm Of Cryptocurrencies

Is this who we want as a leaseholder at Mount Sunapee State Park?

In 2017, Och-Ziff, a criminally sanctioned hedge fund, assumed the ski area lease at Mount Sunapee. State officials said the deal, structured as it was, precluded State scrutiny. Och-Ziff took over the Sunapee lease without any review by Governor and Executive Councilor. The resort and ski area takes in more than 1,000 acres of public land and infrastructure.
