Teed off at Corporate America

By editors

By Barry Bogage

Corporate America proves again that it has no sense of propriety. Not only is Goldman Sachs in trouble because it apparently bet against America, we now learn that Northrop Grumman had the gall to ask Virginia taxpayers to pay for country club memberships.

Something has gone wrong with America when its corporate executives see the public as chumps.

Uhhhh... from the article:

"Economic development and political officials in two jurisdictions told The Washington Post that Northrop asked for several perks during preliminary discussions, including reimbursement for moving costs and country-club memberships. **The company has denied making those requests.**"
