The CEO of Star Scientific is a true political #$%$. Over a number of years, he threw company money at Virginia's governor and the governor reciprocated by allowing Star Scoentific to use the governor's mansion for a luncheon to bugle its dietary products and facial creams.
Star Scientific, incidentally, was once a cigar and cigarette company that reinvented itself apparently to seek out a wider audience of the vulnerable and naive.
Now it becomes clear: It was the obvious honesty and integrity of the management at Star Scientific which impressed you. Jack may be bit inept, but at least he's not a #$%$. ( Although, like the Star Scientific Management, he will probably also get a rash of class action lawsuits for this little oversight.)
