Politicians Jump Onto the Pig Pile
Well, here is real trouble for Toyota now. Looks like Toyota may have "misled" regulators in the handling of the recall. Hell hath no fury like a Democratic controlled Congress who is about to lose control of the House and Senate in 2010. Toyota, whether negligent or not, is easy pickings for a Congress that has done all but purchase the entire fleet of American made cars to buy off their constituents.
But, if Toyota intentionally misled regulators, then they will reap what they sow.
