Skilling Sentenced, Incoherent

Categories: United States of America.

Jeff Skilling was sentenced to a smidgen more than 24 years today. Shortly before the sentencing, he addressed the judge with some of the most bizarre doublespeak I’ve ever seen published in a news article.

“In terms of remorse your honor, I can’t imagine more remorse. That being said your, your honor, I am innocent of these charges. I am innocent of every one of these charges.”

In other words: “I’m really, really sorry that I did all those horrible things which, I must point out, I did not do.”
