(It’s late and I shouldn’t, but I feel this insane urge to use caps and rant. I beg your indulgance.)
Today is 7/17/2002.
Enron imploded sometime about 11/2001, due to insanely unethical insider accounting fraud. The Justice Department is investigating.
So: WHY (TF!), after EIGHT MONTHS, hasn’t A SINGLE Enron employee been indicted? And IIRC we’ve had no indication that this will EVER happen, right???
OK, so they nuked Arthur Andersen. Big whoop-de-doo. The cookie thieves get away while the dumbass night watch on the cookie jar takes the fall. Nice job, Feds. Bah.
So when will someone who actually worked at Enron be brought up on charges? Swindling a zillion stockholders, not to mention bilking all the employee’s out of thier retirement, IS ILLEGAL, is it not? WHAT THE FUCK IS TAKING SO LONG FOR INDICTMENTS TO HAPPEN?!
I want “the Enron Five” or whoever in custody in orange jumpsuits. I want a “perp walk” of executives, in chains, before the cameras. I want some stock options taken fucking back. Goddammit!
And then let’s start on WorldCom. And friends.
But seven+ months later, nothing. Zip. Zilch.
Are these bastards going to walk? Is AA considered a sacrificial lamb over at JD, and no more will be done beyond convicting the accounting firm that certified the fraud by employees at Enron? Why is no one at Enron being held responsible??
One might be tempted to wonder if the Justice Department is making an unbiased and credible investigation. Comment, Mr. Ashcroft?
Thanks. I’m feeling much better. Dammit.
If this has been covered in another thread, apologies.
