Ethical Help for WorldCom

The APCO PR firm, which is currently representing WorldCom in its ongoing bankruptcy scandal, has hired Tim Croasdaile as a senior vice president. Croasdaile formerly chaired the National Investor Relations Institute's ethics committee. He should fit right in at APCO, which has worked previously to set up deceptive front groups for clients such as the tobacco industry and Russian robber baron Mikhail Khodorkovsky.
