Toyota charged with racketeering

Leave it to Toyota to set records.  Ol' "Mr. T" is now the defendant in the first consumer lawsuit of its kind, charged with violating RICO, the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.  I like the part where one of the attorneys refers to Toyota's policy of blaming somebody else when things go wrong.  That's the Toyota I've come to know.

Racketeering?  Somehow, Toyota keeps remindin' me of the Godfather.
