bit of a bump here.

after looking like a settlement was near, the investigation took a new turn for at least one VW exec as he was arrested over the weekend by the American FBI arrested on a conspiracy charge.

http://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/09/bu...ettlement.html

with the turn over in the US gov't quickly approaching i cant help but feel there is a political game being played out but on the other hand the scale of the deception means that there should be greater consequences at the executive level of VW greater then just monetary fines.

Certainly seems to be much deeper than I initially thought.

Executive salaries are sickening and I certainly agree that when the power is abused, harsh punishments should been issued.

this may be neither here nor there but i wonder how many VW exec are in Detroit right now for the auto show?

i have a mental image of private planes and VW execs fleeing the US at an alarming rate.

I just find it funny that West Virginia University did the study that uncovered this. Who is WVU's largest donor? The coal lobby!
