Former Enron executive David Delainey plead guilty to insider trading today as part of the investigation into the financial scandal that ripped off thousands of Americans. The government made him pay about $8 million in fines, probably a lot less than he made at the company. Meanwhile, many employees lost their entire pension plans. So far, Ken Lay and Jeffrey Skilling, the real ring leaders of the Enron circus, have not been charged with any wrongdoing.
