This morning I questioned whether HP CEO Mark Hurd would escape from HPGate unscathed. Apparently not.

This morning I questioned whether HP CEO Mark Hurd would escape from HPGate unscathed. Apparently not. News.com is reporting, via the Washington Post, that Hurd approved of an e-mail ruse involving reporter Dawn Kawamoto that involved planting a bogus news tip that, hopefully, would be followed up and leave a trail back to an HP leaker. The legality of the 'dirty tricks' is not clear, but it is at least unethical and not something the CEO would want to be associated with. 
Stay tuned tomorrow. HP is holding a press conference, with Hurd in attendance, in the San Francisco Bay Area after the stock market closes at 1 p.m. PDT.
