A report by Rich Duprey on The Motley Fool today looks into Apple’s stock option backdating scandal in some detail and voices his opinions on what the consequences should be for CEO Steve Jobs. Duprey writes: “Will Steve Jobs be able to survive Apple’s backdating scandal? More importantly, should he be allowed to survive? My colleague Anders Bylund reported last week that with Apple’s stock-option backdating investigation coming to a close, the computer maker was able to get back to business. But in truth, there are many more investigations still ripening. Aside from the internal investigation, the SEC has launched a probe, and the company faces shareholder lawsuits from the scandal.”
