The giant pension fund’s corporate governance honcho, Anne Simpson doesn’t like Carl Icahn’s jerk-off plans. She doesn’t like his jerk-off Twitter account. And she doesn’t like him, jerk off. Uncle Carl had better keep his goldbrickin’ ass out of her beach community state.
Anne Simpson, the head of corporate governance at Calpers, or California Public Employees’ Retirement System, said Thursday the pension plan won’t be supporting Mr. Icahn’s push for a bigger buyback at Apple as they are happy with the company’s already-announced plan for its capital. In the process, she called Mr. Icahn a “raider” a “Johnny come lately” and criticized his tweeting about dinner with Apple CEO Tim Cook as “unseemly….”
“We are uncomfortable with a raider coming into a company with a proposal to disgorge cash,” Ms. Simpson told Bloomberg. “Carl Icahn is a Johnny come lately.”
