HOSPITALS: Scrushy guilty of something at last

Those of  you despairing of rich people being able to buy their way out of trouble may be encouraged by this headline—Scrushy, Siegelman found guilty on federal conspiracy, bribery charges . Well at least he’s going down for something. Perhaps this jury wasn’t quite a susceptible to the bought and paid for black Ministers that are Scrushy’s new best buddies, or maybe he didn’t bother hiring them this time around. At any event hopefully he gets what’s coming to him this time.

    I thought the best part was Scrushy’s wife’s comment: ‘NBC-13 in Birmingham reports Scrushy’s wife, Leslie Scrushy, upon hearing the verdict, shook her head and said, “I don’t understand it.”‘ The Clue Train apparently only does a “whistle-stop” in Birmingham.
    I think we need another statute, like RICO only this one could be called COCO: the “CEO-Influenced Corrupt Organization” statute.
