"Shortly after funds were frozen, Don Gillispie and Jennifer Ransom temporarily stepped down from their respective roles as CEO of AEHI and President of Energy Neutral™. It is anticipated following a vote of confidence from the AEHI Board of Directors, expected early next week, that both Gillispie and Ransom will resume their former positions."
"resume their former positions?" Ummmm..... maybe they meant "resume the duties of their former positions?" Still, ummmmmm......never mind, the Dude digresses. Back to the topic:
|Jesus! Not another board meeting!|
You think Board meetings are bad? Wait 'till we get our Federal Subpoenas!
That was Friday, February 4th. "Early next week" is now this week, specifically, it was Monday, Tuesday and maybe half of Wednesday, February 7, 8, and 9. Today is Thursday, Februrary 10th. It's now late "next week," and AEHI has not yet issued one of their (in)famous press releases on the "vote of confidence" that they anticipated "early next week".
What's more telling though, is what did come out of the Board of Directors early this week: the abrupt resignations of two of them- Leon Eliason and Greg Kane. Given all the new shit that has come to light, the "personal reasons" claim in the 8-K doesn't quite ring true.
While the Dude was not invited to attend the board meeting, it was a simple matter to reconstruct how it likely went down on Monday:
(Note: the following script is pure fiction. your results may vary)
Meeting Chair: Ok, let's call this meeting to order. Item One; restore Super Awesome CEO Don Gillispie and Key Senior Executive Vice President Jennie Ransom to their cool jobs and give them back the awesome corporate credit cards. All those in favor say, "aye".
Soon-to-Quit Director 1: "Are you people high?"
Chair: You're supposed to say "AYE", not "high". Now, all in favor of giving Don and Jennie their awesome jobs, houses, cars, and credit cards back say AYE.
Soon-to-Quit Director 2, (aside to Director 1): This is unbelievable. If they're not high, then we must be.
Chair (angrily, in an effeminate and somewhat high-pitched voice): STOP saying HIGH! You're supposed to say, "AYE," NOT "high!" Now say "AYE" just like we ALWAYS do! Just like Don said we're supposed to, or we'll get in trouble. SHHH, here he comes!
Directors 1 and 2, exhibiting a level of intelligence not seen since the departure of Director James Taylor in 2008: Screw this shit, we quit.
Director 1: Say whatever you idiots want about why.
Director 2: And you are all high. Neener.
Director 1, to Director 2: Let's go get a beer.
Director 2: Sounds great! Let's call the SEC- maybe we can cut a deal.
Director 1: Then we can go fishing. For purely personal reasons!
Director 2: Hahahaha! Personal Reasons! Hah! That's a good one!
