Scrushy Scrushed

From CNN:

[Former Health South CEO Richard ] Scrushy was accused of arranging $500,000 in donations to Siegelman’s campaign for a state lottery in exchange for a seat on a state hospital regulatory board.

Oh, yeah, former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman, the reason the Democratic Party in Alabama is almost as corrupt on the Boy Scouts [yes, Virginia, in Alabama even the Boy Scouts “cook their books”] was convicted as the other half of this pay for play scheme.

Scrushy had escaped in an earlier trial. He “Enron”-ed Health South.

Ah, memories. I used to have a copy of the Boy Scout Cookbook. What? Oh. <emily_litella_voice> Never mind! </emily_litella_voice>

There’s nothing like a few “phantom troops” to boost the grants based on the number of participants in a program.

After watching Scrushy’s cynical antics with forming a “ministry” as if such an act would allow him to acquire a choir boy appeal in the face of impending corruption trials it proves satisfying to see this respiratory therapist turned cheating scumbag advance closer to his God of vengeance in federal prison. Enjoy your earned time behind bars with the photo of your yacht constructed from money squandered from Medicare and the life work of elderly and sick people whom you parasitised, Scrushy, you callous sociopath bastard.

He is scum, stealing from those least able to afford it by taking from the program that is designed to help them stay alive. He also stole from his employees and perverted something that should have been helping people, into something that hurt them while he prospered.
