Martha Stewart, jailbird, I like the sound of that. Damn, that desiccated hag rubs me the wrong way:
- Martha Stewart’s company said Tuesday the home-decorating mogul has been warned that federal prosecutors plan to seek an indictment against her soon in the insider-trading scandal that has been hanging over her head for the past year.
….Stewart, who built her fortune as a symbol of gracious living and impeccable taste, has been under investigation for selling 4,000 shares of the biotechnology company ImClone Systems in December 2001, just before the stock plunged on disappointing news about a Food and Drug Administration decision on an ImClone cancer drug.
Investigators want to know if Stewart had inside knowledge of the impending FDA decision. She is friends with ImClone founder Samuel Waksal.
….The company also said that federal securities regulators, who previously notified Stewart they intend to bring civil charges against her, will probably file their complaint soon. [AP]
Stripped of her fortune, imposed upon by large manly women behind bars: it’s almost too much to hope for.
