HP Also Targeted Reporter's Father

"Patriciagate gets even stranger. In a twist that indicates the extent of HP's investigation, the CA Attorney General's office said HP's investigators also targeted the personal phone records of CNET reporter Stephen Shankland's father, Thomas, a semi-retired physicist in New Mexico. The scandal prompts CNNMoney to ask Chairwoman Patricia Dunn: Are you lying or incompetent? An emergency HP Board meeting is scheduled for Sunday."

Resign, hell.  This shit is illegal. If some 7-11 clerk named Pablo wiretapped an ex-girlfriend, they'd throw his ass in the clink without thinking twice.  Fuck this shit.  Everytime I see this kind of rigamorole over rich assclown shitbags doing dirt and trying to get away with it, I just think, "yeah, fuckers, keep going.  Just keep piling it on, and we're all one day closer to class war."

Whitey *will* pay.

Usurping privacy like this is the state's prerrogative and only with a court order. How can the CEO of a private company get away with it? Why isn't the FBI all over her?
This is just one notch below what that Enron fellow did.

I seems to me that resignations are the least required. This would have been shit from Enron, let alone from the flagship of worker-friendly capitalism.

With the current administration I am loathe to give them the benefit of the doubt, but the honest truth is that it takes time to investigate a crime to ensure the evidence is there for an indictment, and during that time it's generally a bad idea to comment on a criminal investigation.

Don't forget that just last month a law enforcement group arrested someone based solely on their confession and that turned out to be a bit embarrassing.

I don't have a problem with them doing the footwork before saying or doing anything. But they had BETTER be doing *something* - this woman belongs in jail.

But WTF with it taking a fucking WEEK for the HP board to meet? As soon as this hit the papers, if it's true (i.e. she really made that statement to the board) she should have been gone within the hour.
