I Plead "Justifiable Paranoia," Your Honor
I guess I'm ready to send in my dues to The Grassy Knoll Society.
2. 1990 - George W. "Ar-BUST-O" Bush, through some completely unintended "malfeance," attracts the attention of Breeden's SEC.
1991 - Although their investigation finds that W. is culpable in four
distinct violations of SEC rules, the SEC elects not to prosecute. Hey,
this is Poppy POTUS's boy! Case closed.
4. Global communications giant WorldCom melts down, due (in part) to some of the same shenanigans Arbusto/Spectrum7/Bush Exploration/Harken Oil was guilty of -- just on an infinitely larger scale. A Monitor is appointed to oversee the bankruptcy of WorldCom. The Monitor is...(drum roll)...Richard Breeden! What an absolutely surprising coincidence.
might think that obtaining Mr. Breeden's considerable talent and expertise
in this monumental undertaking would be beyond price. You might think
that, but you'd be wrong. Eight hundred bucks an hour. $800.00/hr. Eight-zero-zero
with a Dollar $ign in front. Per hour. That's the price.
