||Ken Lay was advised
by legal counsel not to attend Fritz Hollings congressional commission.
Any body wonders why he shouldn't face the music?
In the Democratic election commercials
in North Carolina. opposing the candidacy of Elisabeth Dole and criticizing
her meeting with a Christian women group after she promised to put her
campaign on hold, Ken Lay was called a scoundrel. It needs one to know
Byron Dorgan, ND (d) on the talk circuit
stated also to have made up his mind. Not much chance for Lay to expect
objectivity. After Lay's cancellation of his earlier promised appearance
"Fritz" Hollings, SC (d) expressed his displeasure and promised a vote
to subpoena Ken Lay. His motivation was also spite over the minimal contributions
he had received, contra to his opponents; a meager $3500 over a 10 year
period. The subpoena vote was not enough to air his feeling: he also called
for a special prosecutor to investigate the Bush Administration, whom he
accused of being the most "cash and carry" ever. He forgot about the previous
administration. Enough scoundrels to go around.
