Geithner's not a Goldman guy, but...

his chief of staff is!

From the NYTimes' Peter Baker on February 3, 2009:

Some who worked as lobbyists have found places in the administration, including Mark Patterson, who represented Goldman Sachs and is now chief of staff to Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner.

I guess Goldman effectively still has enormous influence over the Treasury Department... even after Hank Paulson (R-Goldman) and Robert Rubin (D-Goldman) had left.

Change I can believe in!
