Outgoing Hewlett-Packard chairwoman Patricia Dunn has agreed to go before the Congressional panel looking into the scandal. This should be the show to watch next week, barring anymore developing world coups or major financial meltdowns.

As new revelations about Hewlett-Packard Co.'s director spying scandal cascade, Chairwoman Patricia Dunn and the company's general counsel have agreed to testify next week before a House panel investigating the affair.
With federal and California prosecutors conducting criminal investigations of HP's use of deceptive tactics to find a boardroom leaker, some experts say the executives' testimony to Congress could be fraught with legal peril.
On the other hand, the risks of invoking their Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination -- as a parade of corporate executives have done on Capitol Hill in recent years -- could be even greater, according to others.

So we’re going to compile a list of questions for Patty. Once we’ve assembled them, we plan to email the questions to various members of Congress. What would you ask Patty? Leave you questions in the comments or email us at tips (at) dealbreaker (dot) com. (Subject line: WWYAP)
