“Aug. 17, 6:08 p.m.: ‘John, here's what I would like: 1) This goes away. 2) You and I discuss this thing. 3) At least let me keep working till we discuss it. We have the budget DOPS, the bond issue, the credit rating report to finalize. 4) ‘I got no place else to go' (quote from an officer and a gentleman), Bill.”
—An excerpt, printed in the Danbury, Conn., News-Times, from a series of e-mails that former Danbury Hospital Senior Vice President William Roe sent to the hospital's president and CEO, John Murphy, regarding an ongoing investigation into Roe's alleged involvement with wire fraud and interstate transportation of stolen funds. Roe sent the e-mails despite a federal court order that prohibited him from contacting any witnesses in the case, including Murphy. “DOPS” refers to the Danbury Office of Physician Services.
