Fleishman-Hillard Execs Hit Low Water Mark

The LA Times has reported that a federal grand jury indicted Douglas R. Dowie, 57, of Los Angeles, on 15 felony counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy. Dowie routinely ordered subordinates at Fleishman-Hillard, an international public relations firm, to inflate the number of hours they worked under contracts with the city's Department of Water and Power and the Port of Los Angeles, as well as with two private clients, the indictment charged. His name was added to an existing complaint against a former Fleishman-Hillard vice president, John Stodder, 49, who faces a conspiracy charge and 11 counts of wire fraud. Stodder pleaded not guilty.

I wrote a few weeks ago that I felt the PRSA should take action against the professionals involved. Never mind. I'll just keep a look out for a California license plate that reads, " - 30 - "

By the way, does anyone know which two private clients were involved?
