Regarding that paragon of virtue and honesty, Verbruggen,
Wall Street Journal article wrote:
From 2001 to 2004, Thomas Weisel Partners managed some of the personal assets for Hein Verbruggen, then head of the Union Cycliste Internationale, cycling's governing body, said the broker, Jim Ochowicz, in an interview.
In a 2008 interview with the <Wall Street> Journal, Verbruggen said he had never been involved in a business relationship with Ochowicz and Weisel. Reached by phone Wednesday, Verbruggen declined to comment. "It's getting ridiculous," he said when asked about the account.
Well, I suppose (if he's followed Bill Clinton's example), Verbruggen could maintain that having a brokerage account with Ochowicz in Weisel's firm does not constitute a business relationship. "I did not have business relations with those men, Mssrs. Ochowicz and Weisel."
I wonder whether Oprah or Armstrong even mentioned Weisel in the interview to be aired. Weisel does not look like Mr. Clean.
