Ken Lay - The Real Life Prison Breakposted by MR WAVETHEORY at 10/18/2006 06:43:00 AM
The Kenneth Lay and Enron saga has turned into a real life version of Prison Break. In the Prison Break, the Vice President of the United States fakes the killing of his brother so that he can get off of corruption charges free and clear. The VP stashes her brother away in Wyoming and the protagonist of the show, Lincoln Burrows, is the guy who takes the fall, gets falsely imprisoned, and plots a prison break. Being a conspiracist, it is interesting to note that Kenneth Lay's conviction for fraud and cheating investors out of billions of dollars was overturned after his death.
A federal judge Tuesday vacated the conviction of Enron's late founder Kenneth Lay, wiping out a jury's verdict that he committed fraud and conspiracy in one of the biggest corporate scandals in U.S. history.Now, who gets to take the $43 million?
