Did Paul Wolfowitz lose his job as World Bank Group president because he didn't heed its top lawyer? Roberto Daņino, the bank's former GC, thinks so. In his first interview since leaving the World Bank in 2006, Daņino says Wolfowitz prevented him from reviewing an employment contract for girlfriend Shaha Riza that was more lavish than what the bank's ethics committee had actually OK'd. Had he seen the contract, Daņino says, he would have sent it back for revision, and Wolfowitz might still have his job.
