    This lying bitch stole billions of dollars from investors through her blood test company Theranos. She got off with an SEC fine of a few hundred thousand dollars which is a fraction of a percent of what she stole. She is every bit the monster that Bernie Madoff was she's just a young blonde somewhat attractive woman so she gets a pass. I guess. This wacko is still trying to raise more money for her fraudulent company! She needs to do some serious time in prison.

    Elizabeth Holmes faked the baritone of her voice, secretly dated COO

    I agree, she should be in custody.......arrested and indicted. I would not be surprised that she doesn’t still have a few million bucks that she could use to disappear to some tropical island to live a very comfortable life.

    She is a classic con man. She even fashioned herself into a female Steve Jobs right down to the black turtleneck. She is a piece of work.

    Doesn't she have a lot of politically important people who are either on her board or invested heavily in her firm? I seem to recall that she is related to some important person or another. They all cover for each other.

    Yes her board was loaded with big name old time politicians like Kissinger, Schultz and Sam Nunn. From what I've read she wasn't born into her connections. She is very bright and holds about 80 patents. She just has that pathological liar conman personality.

    Crimes in the stock market are rarely punished. Don't trust anyone.

    I am currently reading the book by that Wall Street Journal reporter who broke the story. Bad Blood. She wasn't subtle, that's for sure. She just ---- lied! Lied, lied, lied for years.

    One scary thing about her is that her voice is an actual baritone. Which is really abnormal for a woman. She does seem to be genetically a woman, but there is something seriously wrong with her voice, apparently, and everyone who met her just had a startle reaction. I don't know what that means.

    I am trying to figure out what was wrong with her thinking that she went so drastically wrong ---- she wasted many billions. Got nothing. Lied to everyone. She literally never had a product.

    Well, it just goes to show, women can be crooks, too. Doesn't happen as often as with men, but it can happen.
