Do As We Say, Not as We Do . . .

There's just one question that comes to mind while reading over the alleged misdeeds of former Best Buy > Chairman and founder Richard M. Schulze: Just what was this guy thinking?!?

By this point the general outline of the story is fairly well-known: Schulze resigned after acknowledging he knew about an "improper relationship" between < Best Buy >'s (married and recently resigned) CEO Brian Dunn and a younger female employee, yet failed to report it to the board of directors.

For me, the kicker is when an executive provided Schulze with a signed statement detailing the relationship, Schulze totally dropped the matter when Dunn denied it was true.

So, < Best Buy, how's that whistleblower program working out and how're the corporate ethics folks feeling these days?
