I am no longer stunned when I hear things like this, but figured it was worth noting. Andrew Fastow of Enron scandal fame was sentence to 6 years. SIX YEARS!!! And this is after he agreed to a plea bargain of 10 years!
Are you kidding me? Does anyone remember the ten’s of thousands of employees in Texas, California, and worldwide whose pensions were completely wiped out? These peoples lives were ruined… we are not talking the equivalent of six years in a minimum security facility… we are talking about about decades of hard labor. Labor that these employees will have to put in at the age of 60,70,80 just to pay their bills because this weasel and his cohorts STOLE all their earnings. Fastow and the other scum are responsible for the loss of hundreds of thousands of years – years that were supposed to be the “golden years,” years of relaxing and taking up a hobby, years of travelling, years of visiting the grandkids… all wiped out by their EVIL GREED…
…and the bastard only gets six years in a country club. SHAME!
