Halliburton could land Cheney in court
Speaking of delicious ironies, here's another entry for that file. It looks like Clinton v. Jones might haunt the Republicans. You remember Clinton, right? That's the Supreme Court decision that forced Pres. Clinton to testify under oath and in public in Paula Jones' sexual harrassment case against him.
Well, now we learn that Veep Cheney's Halliburton was engaged in financial shenanigans, improperly reporting over $100 million in profits while he was the company's CEO. All under the watchful eye of Arthur Andersen.
Halliburton's stock price has plummeted over the last year, and took another dive on this latest news. As is wont to happen in these cases, shareholders get together and sue the crap out of the company's officers. And if Halliburton investors follow the rule, it looks like Cheney will have to testify in open court, under oath.Posted June 02, 2002 10:01 PM | Comments (0)
