Raj Has 2 Extra Months To Run

The sentencing for Raj Rajaratnam, who was convicted in May of insider trading, has been delayed.

It’s been pushed 2 months from July 27th to September 27th, which gives the billionaire 2 extra months to plot his escape, should he have one.

He might have 3 kids and a wife but when we polled people to see if they thought Raj would run, not an overwhelming majority, but a majority thought he would, pronably because he’s a billionaire facing ~20 years and he has big ties in Sri Lanka.

And now he has 2 extra months to get another passport and figure out how to get that electronic monitoring anklet off.

The fabulous life of Raj Rajaratnam >
