Intuit leader: CEOs should do time for crime

Intuit's Scott Cook believes CEOs should live up to a high moral code and that violators should be held accountable.

In an interview with CNET News.com, Intuit co-founder Scott Cook said he's disheartened by news of "skullduggery or just plain malfeasance" among CEOs every month or so.

"CEOs hold a sacred trust, and not just to their employees who believe in the person leading the company and setting the tone. They hold a trust to society," he said. "There is no way that some drug dealer in the street should go to jail and that big-time CEO crooks should not go. Hopefully, justice will be done, and that will serve as a lesson to everyone in the business--that we should live up to the highest moral code." To read the full interview, click here.
