Contrary to Anyone's Knowledge, HealthSouth's Fraud is Still in the News

The Ghosts of Bush Administration Corporate fraud are still lingering. There is currently a civil case against Richard Scrushy, the former CEO of HealthSouth and some shocking news came out of a deposition of an executive that was/is helping (isn't clear from the article) turn the company around.

According to the AP, Scrushy, who beat criminal charges back in 2005 (only by virtue of a carefully negotiated deal with the Morning Star), left the company with "no internal controls".

SHEESH, I guess it makes you wonder how fraud was able to occur in the first place...
