The Delta from $407m to $2b is one that is not easily reconciled! So once we get past this obvious regulatory transgression the desire of a Regulator to dig deeper is not only expected but it is necessary! Ms Bennett may be the "victim" of overzealous regulators and I for one applaud the Regulators efforts as no one can explain away touting $2b versus $407m in regulatory filings, Barron's articles or on a radio show. But I do appreciate efforts of her Lawyers to use the age old tactic of "look over there, I see a squirrel" when all other legal defenses have been exhausted, as this is what lawyers do...as for the mondo bizarro voodoo, one can only laugh!
