Tyco Wife's Bawdy Birthday Bash
The pillaging of Tyco International by former chairman Dennis Kozlowski and his corporate cohorts was apparently a ransacking of epic proportions. Among hundreds of improper expenditures, the company actually paid half the $2 million tab for the ostentatious 40th birthday party of Kozlowski's wife Karen. Details of last June's shindig on the Italian island of Sardinia are contained in this e-mail sent to party planners by Tyco employee Beth Pacitti (the memo, drafted two months before the bacchanal, refers to Kozlowski as "LDK"). TSG's favorite touch, of course, was the ice sculpture of David, um, spewing vodka. Class all the way. (1 page)
