The Enron trial begins today.
HOUSTON – Of the more than 100 potential jurors slated to pack a cavernous federal courtroom in Houston Monday, attorneys must ferret out a dozen who aren’t already convinced that Enron Corp. founder Kenneth Lay and former CEO Jeffrey Skilling are crooks and liars.
That’s gonna be a tough one.
It’ll be interesting to see if Ken Lay doesn’t start blabbing on the stand about the Cheney Energy Task Force and Iraq. I wonder if the White House is set at MPF (Maximum Pucker Factor) as this thing kicks off.
It will also be interesting to see if there’s any high-handedness on the part of the Bush Justice Department.
