19. Remember the Evergreen/Enron extortion of California?
Beige Davis lost his political career because he wouldn't call their bluff, the perpetrators got away with over $10B taxpayer dollars, and the 5th largest economy (at that time) on earth was sent into a free-fall it never recovered from, and who went to jail for it?

BTW, who was in charge of the Federal government while this crime was being committed?
