You had to know this was going to happen. HP boardmembers are now leaking to the media about the board meeting yesterday about leaks on the board. Whew, got all that? We’re soon going to need a metaphysics professor to help keep this stuff straight.
One insider says there are three HP directors, however, who feel that Dunn’s investigation never should have been a high priority, and who lay the blame for the “pretexting” of directors’ and business journalists’ phone records (including those of the author and two other Business Week reporters) squarely with Dunn. This group includes George “Jay” Keyworth, who was identified through phone records as the source of the leaks and will not be on the slate for reelection in 2007, as well as director Lucy Salhany, and former HP executive and long-time director Richard A. “Dick” Hackborn.
In the hours that she has left as chair, I wonder if Ms. Dunn will order up some phone taps, or maybe a little water-boarding, to get the bottom of the leaks about the leaks?
