Rigulator or Riggulator (rig/rigging + regulator)

"Rigulator” or “riggulator” (rig/rigging + regulator) is a term used by those who believe that government does more than regulate. The term “rigulator” has been infrequently used on financial websites, where people believe that the government helps rig the financial markets.

“The banksters and the rigulators” was cited in print in 2010.

Hello Mr. Sinclair,
(...)
Anyway, I also decided to write to you today to share a new term with you that my wife, Dawn, just coined. It was so good that I thought it should be shared with you, to in turn share with the world.
So without further ado, here is the term: Government RIG-ulators

Since our country is currently overrun with ‘Government RIG-ulators’, I thought it would be appropriate for anyone who refers to them in print to identify them with their appropriate title!

Thank you again for all you do!
