(Cross-post from my other blog, Attestation Update.)
We know the price Mr. Scott London, former partner of KPMG, is accused of setting for his integrity, honor, and reputation. The entrance price tag was several thousand dollars and added up to under $100,000.
Cumulative amount is allegedly $50,000 cash plus a watch with claimed value of $12,000 plus some concert tickets for his family, with asserted total around $70,000 or $90,000.
That total allegation isn’t the real measure of his price. The starting point was a few thousand dollars in the first deal. If the story outlined in the criminal indictment is correct, that is the point his integrity was sold.
An old joke about your price
There is an old joke with many variations that goes something like this:
Man to woman in a social setting: “would you sleep with me for a million dollars?”
She indicated she would be willing to do so.
Him: “How about for $20?”
With great indignation, she said “Of course not! What kind of woman do you think I am?”
