Bush on Ken Lay
From ThinkProgress

Bush Rewrites History on Lay

President Bush told Larry King that deceased Enron founder Ken Lay was “a good guy.” That’s just patently false. A jury confirmed as much. And as for Lay’s crimes, Bush said he was “disappointed.”

  • Memo to Bush: “Disappointed” is dropping an ice cream cone in the mud. Leaving thousands of employees with worthless pension plans and profiting wildly by knocking California off the power grid ... that’s a bit more than “disappointing.”

    Ken Lay, Former Enron CEO, Dies of Heart Attack

    Enron Corp. founder Ken Lay, who six weeks ago was found guilty in one of the biggest corporate scandals in U.S. history, and who was expected to face decades in prison for his fraud and conspiracy convictions in the Enron collapse, died of a heart attack on Wednesday. He was 64.

    Ken Mehlman Holds His Own Against Jon Stewart

    The chairman of the Republican National Committee did a surprisingly good job ducking and parrying the jabs that the “Daily Show” host launched at him over the Bush administration’s record of lies and deceit. (Stewart got in a few zingers, but Mehlman is as good as they come.)

    Robert Scheer: Bush Links Energized Enron

    The Bush family consistently acted to put Enron and its longtime CEO, Ken Lay, into a position to rip off investors and taxpayers. Why is the mass media ignoring that fact now that Lay has been convicted in arguably the most egregious example of white-collar fraud in U.S. history?

    Truthdiggers of the Week: The Enron Trial Jurors

    Truthdig salutes the 12 jurors who sacrificed four months of their lives to sift through the lies of former Enron chiefs Ken Lay and Jeffrey Skilling, convicting them on 25 counts of conspiracy to commit securities and wire fraud. Interviewed after the case, jurors were incredulous that the two former titans were unaware of the crimes at their company. “Skilling was supposed to be a hands-on individual,” one juror told a newspaper. “It’s hard to believe a hands-on individual wouldn’t know what was going on.”

    The Enron Story Everyone Is Missing: The Bush-Ken Lay Connection

    Former Enron Chief Ken Lay may stand convicted, but as Truthdig Editor Robert Scheer has been writing for years, no accounting of the Enron scandal will be complete until we have full disclosure of Lay’s entanglements with the White House. Check out this classic Scheer column: “Enron is Whitewater in spades. This isn’t just some rinky-dink land investment like the one dredged up by right-wing enemies to haunt the Clinton White House—but rather it has the makings of the greatest presidential scandal since the Teapot Dome.”

    Lay and Skilling

    A Verdict on an Era?

    That’s what the N.Y. Times calls the conviction of Enron honchos Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling. But Truthdig contributing cartoonist Mr. Fish has a different perspective (click here to see the full cartoon).

  • Truthdig editor Robert Scheer has written about the crooks from Texas in his new book, “Playing President.” Click here to read some of those classic columns.
