Another former teller, Rebecca Lewis, said she saw unauthorized accounts -- especially credit cards -- opened when she was hired in March 2009 in Idaho. Her attempts to flag the issue by calling the ethics hotline backfired, echoing allegations other former workers who say they were retaliated against. "Wells Fargo has been a hazard to the public for a long time," Lewis said.

Money Quote: Warren told Stumpf he should “give back the money you took while this scam was going on and you should be criminally investigated by both the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission.”

Liz Warren crashes the cozy DC-Disneyland Plutocracy Party, at a most inopportune time in an election of, by, and for the Robber Barony: “For the uncounted millions of Americans whose lives were changed forever and for those who are still dealing with the consequences of the crash, I can think of no matter of ‘intense public interest’ about which ‘the American people deserve the details’ than the issue of what precisely happened to the criminal referrals that followed the 2008 crash.”

In today's "Well, Duh" report ... SWIFT is further trying to motivate its member banks to get on the security stick with threats to expose security issues to the public they might like to keep quiet about. “That type of information sharing is something that no bank likes to see happen without their direct approval and involvement, because it can affect market confidence,” noted Shane Shook, an independent security consultant who advises central banks.

(Mylan: The Pestilence That Just Keeps On Giving) “I was one of those shareholders that experienced ‘sticker shock’ when I found out how much I owed all because of the conversion of Mylan stock when they shifted HQ from Canonsburg to the Netherlands,” the shareholder told us. “Your link to the FiercePharma article about Mylan handing out money to overpaid execs so they can pay their taxes is making me mad all over again.”
Mylan’s EpiPen tornado is far from its first storm of controversy. It’s just the most mainstream. The company's top brass has caught fire for personal use of company aircraft, an unearned degree, outsized compensation and alleged conflicts of interest.

"Aside from the fired worker bees, the only parties being punished are Wells Fargo shareholders. That $185 million fine, plus lost business and legal costs, reduces their asset value ... Worse, the regulators who should protect the public will do nothing to stop the similar misconduct that is surely happening at other large banks. There’s never just one cockroach."

Today's Helpful Investor Question: 'At age 86, does Buffett have it in him to make good on those words from a quarter-century ago: "lose a shred of reputation for the firm, and I will be ruthless"? Or could he help assuage the turmoil with a few comments at one of his folksy steakhouse interviews?'

(Ka-Ching! Another Special-Place-In-Hell Winner!)
I asked Fairbanks if she was taking any prescription meds.
“No,” Fairbanks answered. “Are you?”
I told her that, as a person with Type 1 diabetes, I’ve watched
helplessly as the price of insulin has tripled since 2002.
“Oh,” Fairbanks replied.
Oh indeed.
Pharmaceutical heavyweight Mylan, the latest poster child for drug-industry greed, finally stuck up for itself Thursday. It argued that “the system,” not avarice, was to blame for the company jacking up the price of EpiPens, a common (and life-saving) allergy remedy, by over 400%.
