John Paulson Cuts Manse in Southampton (Again)

John Paulson, the hedge funder who testified on the financial meltdown in front of a congressional committee yesterday, is having a meltdown of his own in the Hamptons. Seven months after he put his mansion on the market for $19 million—and after lowering the price to $16.9 million in August—he's dropped it once again. The Southampton spread is now listed at $13.9, which is getting close to the $12.75 million he paid for the property in 2006. [WSJ, PDE]
