Comcast notified PricewaterhouseCoopers that a person claiming to be a PwC employee called its chief accounting executive's office with complaints about his cable service and bills, and yelled at its employees who tried to assist him, according to a letter one of its attorneys sent to Maureen Ryan, O'Rourke's attorney. Ryan said Comcast told PwC that O'Rourke had tried to use his employment there as leverage in making his complaints. "They went to his employer and said he had violated accounting ethics," she said. "That's not a minor charge to make." Both Ryan and O'Rourke deny he committed any ethics violation or even let Comcast know he worked for PwC. [CNN]
