The Actual Confidential Emails by Enron Employees Shared with Koch Employees, the Year right Before the Enron Scandal Became Known

Enron’s scandal became known on October 2001, but throughout the year of 2000, Enron Execs sent out copies, forwarded, or blind copied emails to the same Koch employees involving deregulation of commodities. Prior to 2000, Enron and Koch already had a history together, involving them creating the first weather derivatives. In 2001 Enron makes the news because they go bankrupt. Koch Industries has been around for many years, prior to Enron being created in 1985. Unlike Koch, Enron had none of the power and political influence the Koch brothers wheel. Today Koch Industries have increase their need to dictate today’s politics and having influence over the economics of this country. They have an open battle with President Obama and any agency such as the Environmental Protection Agency that would try their hands regulation.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
