KY thought that it was OK to lie to research analysts about projected earnings, and he also thought it was OK to put family members into high-paying positions, even if they weren't actually doing anything. Anyway, it doesn't really matter because Intel needs to keep them afloat to have a competitor and thus not face antitrust litigation, so they will continue to back door finance them.
thats kinda a big accusation to throw out there ....
