Remember Enron?

Thursday, February 3, 2005 Posted: 11:28 PM EST
(CNN) -- A Washington state utility released audiotapes Thursday that it said revealed bankrupt energy trader Enron Corp. plotted to take a power plant off-line in 2001 to jack up electric prices in Western states.
Can you imagine if someone in a Democratic president's inner circle had run a company this way? The story would be pounded nonstop by all the cable channels, the "liberal" N.Y. Times, there would be house committee hearings, Rush would be outraged, and it would be the political story of the week, every week on the Sunday morning shows. But since Ken Lay is a Bush family butt buddy... ehhh, no real story here. Nothing to see folks, move along.
