    Better to see him leave HLF. They need someone more aggressive.

      It’s not smart to be aggressive when Herbalife is a scam.

    His timing is impeccable. Right before the quarterly report and the conclusion of the government investigations. What does he know that we don’t? Plenty. Herbalife operates very similar to Amway, the world’s largest MLM scam. Read about both of them here, and forward the link to every non-Amway person you know, so they don’t get scammed: http://www.StopTheAmwayToolScam.wordpress.com. When enough people know, these scams will collapse.
