[quote:Chrit:MV8yMjA0NDg4XzM3NDY1NTY0X0MwMEU4N0FC] Here is the new press conference from yesterday, Friday 4/19. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnRS-9qj4w4[/youtube] Snip; [b]Cleveland Browns owner [/b]and Pilot Flying J CEO [b]Jimmy Haslam on Friday again denied any wrongdoing and said he wasn't stepping aside[/b], even as federal authorities alleged that he was aware of a widespread scheme to defraud customers of the truck stop chain. According to court documents, sales team members said Haslam, who is the [b]older brother of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam[/b], was aware of at least some instances of employees withholding diesel price rebates and discounts from Pilot customers to boost the company's profits and sales commissions. Haslam would not answer a reporter's question about whether he had been involved in meetings where rebate fraud was discussed. He shrugged off suggestions he might step down. "I thought to myself, `Well, why would I do that?' Candidly, I haven't done anything wrong, No. 1,'' Haslam said at the company's headquarters in Knoxville. "No. 2, if there's ever a time the company needs our leadership, it's right now.'' [b]Leaders of the sales team derided some clients as unsophisticated, lazy and undeserving of rebates, according to transcripts of secretly recorded conversations.[/b] FBI special agent Robert H. Root said in an affidavit that the practice was known by a variety of euphemisms [b]including "jacking the discount,'' "manual rebates,'' and "screwing'' the customer[/b]. [b]No charges have been filed in the case[/b]. Pilot, a privately-held company that posted $29 billion in revenues in 2012, is the largest diesel retailer in the country.
