This company is a joke. Jerome Richter, despite countless self dealing, and driving the company into the ground, once again has cozied himself up with the company (Rio Vista) for a consulting agreement. This guy ought to be put in jail. He owes Penn Octane money and owns stock in the company, yet won't repay the loan. Someone needs to sue the mess out of him. This company will always be a penny stock as long as it has highly unethical officerswho don't have the balls to seek legal channels to make him repay.
