The Federal Indictment “He doesn’t want you to know about”

Three years without having to suffer through another windbag, snake-oil salesman’s pitch from the dark prince of nighttime television infomercials…


Judge Orders Kevin Trudeau to Pay More Than $37 Million for False Claims About Weight-Loss Book

A federal judge has ordered infomercial marketer Kevin Trudeau to pay more than $37 million for violating a 2004 stipulated order by misrepresenting the content of his book, “The Weight Loss Cure ‘They’ Don’t Want You to Know About.”

In August 2008, Judge Robert W. Gettleman of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois had ordered Trudeau to pay more than $5 million and banned him, for three years, from producing or publishing infomercials for products in which he has an interest. The ruling confirmed an earlier contempt finding, the second such finding against Trudeau in the past four years.

I always thought this guy reminded me a little too much of another scam artist in need of indictment: Al Gore.

I think my mom even bought one of his books…
