Charles Wang in the Spotlight

Newsday.com published a story last night in which a former associate of NY Islanders’ owner Charles Wang alleges that Wang “personally directed improper accounting” at Computer Associates (CA) Inc., going back to 1987. 

It’s a complicated story at first glance but fortunately Eric McErlain explains the background a bit clearer at AOL Fanhouse:
