View Full Version : Martha Stewart guilty on all counts!!!!
Well it looks like Rackmup's old squeeze lost the big one. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif Read about it here. Martha (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4429271/)
All that to save $51,000 doesn't sound like a good deal to me. I know about dumping shares even when it is legal. The average person has to be very careful in the market. If a deal is to good to be true, then it probably is. What perils does Martha face, only the shadow knows! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

This is gonna just crush Rack-m-up. Next thing we know, she will launch a successful show from her cell block and all the cellmates will be wearing new prison clothes in the form of maid outfits. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
I won't even begin to list all the misstatements and erroneous conclusions in your original post.
I will conceed one thing, however. Martha has been convicted primarily of lying to investigators. That is not a crime when it comes to your local police but it seems the federal legislators have defined it as a crime. It strikes me pretty much as entrapment. They bring you in and you deny your guilt (something I thought everyone had the right to do). If you are in fact guilty you have just committed another crime even if they decline to prosecute for what you were guilty of.
They are taking advantage of one's right not to testify against oneself and the widespread belief that you need not confess to a crime when questioned. Kafka could write a play about this.

If you choose not to take the 5th, then you expose yourself. She is guilty of everything she is charged with. I seriously doubt this is her first time skirting the law, in fact I would say it is how she operates, it is business as usual and the law does not apply to her. I know a little bit about people who break the law, they have one thing in common, the longer they get away with it, the more they think they are not doing anything wrong. I know arch criminals that believe they are legitimate business men. Don't feel sorry for Martha.
