Hire a Convicted Criminal to Teach Ethics ???

The last 10 years or so there has been an unfortunate trend of confirmed crooks (convicted criminals) leaving their jobs making license plates in prison and taking up the seminar circuit as their latest profession. Barry Minkow of ZZZ-Best fame was one of the early ones. Many, including Barry, magically became born-again, whereas those of us who were born right the first time have had to bear the cross of living life on the straight-and-narrow.

This latest post has to do with an article I came across about a crook named Chuck Gallagher of Southland Texas, who, admitting to serving time in federal prison for “unethical behavior” (hmmm, must’ve been bad since he didn’t say what he really did), has now put on a suit and tie and has reinvented himself as a “business ethics speaker” and “motivational speaker” a la Minkow. Isn’t it kind of fun imagining all these former felons, now celebrity felon speakers, getting together for dinner and drinks after a conference and wondering what they talk about? Maybe bragging to see who stole the most? Or bragging about crimes for which they were never prosecuted or that weren’t even detected?

Anyway, Chuck Gallagher, who doesn’t say exactly what kind of felonious behavior he committed, is now drumming up business by apparently reprinting articles on fraudulent activities, much of it by extracting from Rachel Dollars’ Mortgage Fraud Blog.

If you have the stomach for this kind of rise-from-the-ashes ethics, read the Full Article.
