Lysine price-fixing

Mark Whitacre was the corporate whistleblower who exposed the lysine price-fixing scandal in the 1990s. Wherever he traveled, the FBI arranged to have the same green lamp with a bugging device set up in every hotel room where he stayed and met with fellow executives. Whitacre noted that if there had been any female executives at these meetings, they probably would have spotted the same lamp, but none of the male executives ever seemed to notice.
