Considering the lives he destroyed, it was the best possible result. He gambled with people’s financial futures, he held entire states ransom, and lost with a fall so great it killed him. Or so we are told.

Convicted Enron Corp. founder Ken Lay, who was found guilty of helping perpetuate one of the most sprawling business frauds in U.S. history, has died of a massive coronary. He was 64.

Nicknamed “Kenny Boy” by President Bush, Lay led Enron’s meteoric rise from a staid natural gas pipeline company formed by a 1985 merger to an energy and trading conglomerate that reached No. 7 on the Fortune 500 in 2000 and claimed $101 billion in annual revenues.

Question: is he really dead, or is something weird going on? Was there any foul play? This is just too convenient. The report says his heart “just gave out.” What does that mean? I think this should be thoroughly investigated.

  1. A. Wright says:

    Of course he’s not dead. Only those who are Bushco supporters can possibly think the bastard is dead. Body autopsied and cremated all in the space of 24 hours. What was the damn hurry?…..need we ask?

    >gambled with people’s financial futures, he held entire states ransom

    People do that all the time. Just look at what they’re calling for in the name of global warming.

    Ken Lay stole some money by keep ing Enron alive longer than it should have been. The bigger problem is what they did to keep it form happening again. That Sarbanes-Oxley bill has made London a more attractive place to do IPOs and is costing the US billions every year.

    who gives a shit – the crook is dead! maybe if were luck ol dumya will go the same way…..and quick!

  4. WL Abingdon says:

    I HAVE to say it: Ken Lay looked like Elmer Fudd!
    I can just picture him in woods with that stupid hunters cap and a shotgun hunting wabbits.

  5. Centers says:

    The man is gone, dead, whatever, leave him alone!

    First off, a bond should’nt have been offered, this guy is a bigger terrorist then bin laden. Conveniently on vacation in a town that is roughly 6hrs away from any major airport (denver). Collapse’s and dies and was immediatley creamated. None of his family or friends wanted to see him? Name one billionaire that didn’t have an open casket funeral? Immediatley following, bombs are falling in Lebanon and Isreal over 2 kidnapped Isreali soldiers. A country going to war over 2 soldiers?!! Good cover-up? Indeed! Because now we have a media war in the Middle East, and to hell with flying into Denver and driving 6hrs to Aspen, to cover the story of the biggest terrorist (KEN LAY’S) sudden wham bam thank you ma’ams’ heart attack to ashes story. Especially now that our government (Bush), has a good handle on the media. Divert all the attention to the latest war, which there probably was inside trader on, no rather inside infromation on, and everybody will forget about Ken Lay. Sleigh of hand trick? Or just good timeing? I say BOTH

    To #38: The very same thing can be said about far right of center peoples. So until you find yourself at the center, voting for the BEST candidate rather than the RIGHT candidate, get off your high horse before you fall down and hurt yourself.

    To All: Ken Lay is still alive, touring Europe this fall and Asia in the winter. He would send his regards, but he really doesn’t like America anymore.

  8. Jim says:

    #65: Do you really want a dick in the WH?

    #66: Be vewy, vewy quiet. I’m hunting middle class retirements and pensions.

  9. Diane says:

    He’s NOT DEAD. I don’t buy it! I don’t buy nothing this media or this white house says. LAY IS ALIVE.

  10. Dr Budd says:

    Sure he is? My first thought was I wonder who his plastic surgeon is.
    What a corrupt country .

  11. Chris D says:

    Here it is late December 2006, and I STILL believe Ken Lay pulled a fast one on all of us. He was ‘Kenny Boy’ to the president of the United States, he lived in a small, rich, tightly-knit community, he probably knew the coroner well, and only a handful of his best friends were allowed to attend the funeral or view the body. He had a lot of disposable cash and his wife sold everything and moved away! Come on, the man is holed up on a private island that was bought with the $66 billion “lost” in Iraq by friends of Bush and Cheney.

  12. Ken Lay says:

    Yeah, it’s true–I’m still alive.

    Nya nya, nya nya nya!!

  13. stellarivera says:

    I think Mr Ley is still alive due to the casket was not opened to prove that it was he in there. He knew what was up with enron . For instance if you have a house full of children you are going to know what those kid’s are up to some how some way

  14. Bishop Kane says:

    ken says hello. His exile in xxxxxx is going better than planned. No one knows who he is and he just got a job at the local electric company.
    Being that we can now listen to others phone calls legally. Tune into some of GW’s calls. Saddam calls weekly.

  15. i am no fool says:

    Ken Lay,

    Don’t think for a minute Ken Lay is dead. He was was tight as tight comes to the Bush Crime Family. He knew ALL their secrets, their plunders, and their larcenies and Bush Inc. were co-conspirators and ring leaders. We are talking 4 generations of drug smuggling, assasinations, death, crime, and plundering going back to great grand daddy Bush. Kenny on the stand? What a laugh. Oh and by the way don’t say you have pics of Ken Lay alive unless you want a knock on your door in the middle of the night. For me, I will be waiting with my hand on the trigger…These guys play by no rules and until the American public says we are not going to play by the rules, we will continue to be duped and ripped off by these villians who have no one to answer cause everyone is on their payroll and all are expendible. “If the people were to ever find out what we have done, we would be chased down the streets and lynched.”
    — George H.W. Bush, cited in the June, 1992 Sarah McClendon Newsletter

    You ever notice when the V.P. goes to the mideast it isn’t long before certain problems dissappear. Ley, Obama????

    Kenneth Lay: Alive in Paraguay…Max Keiser covers

    #33…just came across this site 2.5 years later after your comment. You must’ve been shitting bricks in 2006 – when you repigs lost control. And then again in 2008 when Democrats took control of it all. 🙂

    “You want to know why the left or the “progressives” lose political power year after year?”

    Looks like you guys are gonna be losing again in 2010. It’s a wonderful time. 🙂

  19. jamescotton says:

    He is actually hiding in Paraguay on Former President Bush’s property that he acquired while President…….

  20. Randy Palmer says:

    I remember doing a major report about this for a college course, and to see Ken Lay kick the bucket is like revenge for his deeds. Truly a man gone bad.
