UBS tells Obama supporter to use the press office

Anyone who's read the Ron Suskind book Confidence Men knows the important role UBS executive Robert Wolf played in then-Sen. Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign.

Anyone who's read the Ron Suskind book Confidence Men knows the important role UBS executive Robert Wolf played in then-Sen. Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign. Wolf was Obama's primary Wall Street insider, relaying information about the unfolding financial crisis to the Democratic candidate.  

While much of Wall Street has cooled to the president's policies or outright supported Mitt Romney for the White House, Wolf remained loyal, reportedly raising more than $500,000 for the president's reelection bid.

However, he'll have a tough time supporting the president in the press from now through November. UBS' executive board has told Wolf to send all media requests to the company's press office, according to The New York Times, which added that most of those requests have since been rejected.
