This paper describes the circumstances of the scandal that arose around Patricia Dunn, chairman at Hewlett-Packard, when she had to investigate why secrets regarding corporate strategy began appearing in the press. The author explains that when evidence pointed to board member Jay Keyworth as the source of many of the leaks to the press, his friend and fellow board member Tom Perkins took offense at Dunn and launched a campaign to discredit her. The author concludes that it seems that the charges brought against Dunn are largely the result of Perkins's discrediting campaign against her.
