When I did my own investigation into this, I was told the person in question:

I learned this information (with varying levels of detail) from 2 different
independent sources, once a while ago (when the incident first happened),
once recently reconfirmed.
I really wish I was in a hiring position right now. There are an awful lot
of GOOD people out there who need jobs and who can do awesome work. It's a
wonderful time to startup a company, you can hire really good people for
far less than it cost 2-4 years ago (because inflated salaries have come
back down to realistic levels). If only you can shake the startup money
loose from a VC, which is only possible if you have a *real* business plan.
