The HealthSouth scandal continues to unravel like a bawdy soap opera. A day after firing founder and CEO Richard Scrushy and auditing firm Ernst and Young, HealthSouth announced it has booted Emery Harris, the company's vice president and assistant controller. He pled guilty yesterday to criminal fraud charges for his role in helping create fake earnings at the rehabilitation clinic operator. Two former HealthSouth CFOs, William Owens and Weston Smith, have also pled guilty to fraud in the past several weeks. In addition, the company said today that it's delaying filing its 10-K and is postponing its annual meeting. Shocker.
