Don't these guys ever learn?
LOS ANGELES (Reuters)-Federal officials investigating stock-options backdating at Broadcom Corp. are looking into allegations that former Chief Executive Henry Nicholas III used hard drugs and hired prostitutes, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.
The U.S. Attorney's office in Los Angeles has taken an interest in claims Kenji Koto, a former assistant to Nicholas, made earlier this year as part of a civil lawsuit against Nicholas and several of his companies, the report said, citing people close to the situation.
In court papers, Kato claimed that Nicholas had a deep depenence on cocaine and other drugs, regularly slept with prostitutes and women other than his wife, spiked the drinks of Broadcom customers with ecstasy, and ordered prostitutes for customers while at trade shows in Las Vegas. I think this guy missed his calling. He should have been a TV evangelist, or at least a politician.
