If we don't elect representatives to look out for our needs, then this is what we get. Register to vote and then vote these representatives out of office.

Noted. Thanks for posting this info, Freya.
I'm sure this is "the tip of the iceberg" and we don't even know what other companies' crimes were never even addressed. But, it's a good start.....

I would guess that yes, this is very much the tip of the iceberg, and there are probably so many more scandals yet to be discovered. it's just a testament to how much our representatives DON'T represent the common good that none of these scoundrels have gone to jail, but impoverished Americans go in droves.

Fines are not working unless they suddenly become non tax deductible.Take a page from Greenland and send the ones[all of them]that were responsible or should have been responsible for the decisions to jail.Seize property and bank accounts as well.No real penalties means continued bad behaviour...at the ordinary[99%] expense

This is the ''downside'' to capitalism....pandering to the greed of oligarchs.

Did you notice the fines go to the government and not the consumer.
