"Chris Cox: The Man Who Helped Produce the Enron Scandal"

From the OC Weekly, 3/1/02:

To understand how something like the Enron/Arthur Andersen debacle could happen, go back to 1993. That’s when Cox, as part of conservative Republicans’ so-called Contract With America, spearheaded efforts to torpedo protections for corporate investors and shield companies — like Enron — and their accountants — like Arthur Andersen — from investor lawsuits.

Much more to come later this morning in today’s Progress Report.
