06/21/05: Now that former Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski and former CFO Mark Swartz have been found guilty on 22 of 23 counts of grand larceny and conspiracy among other misdeeds, expect a new feeding frenzy to begin. It won’t be the media outlets that will give it much coverage, although they should. The frenzy will come sometime after Labor Day when the 2006 election tryouts begin. This is where incumbents and wannabes line up and tell you how much they will do to make sure corporate fraud is a thing of the past. Of course, much of this will be posturing with no real regard to how this type of corruption not only punishes the shareholders of these companies, but the well meaning executives and employees that work so hard day in and day out. The next big trial will be Kenneth Lay of Enron fame. Need I tell you how that will play out?
