[Scariest People 2008] Count Coxula
The year is 2008. Wall Street is crumbling. Corporative executives have looted their businesses and now seek trillions of dollars in public assistance. Count Coxula (Christopher Cox) has left his Newport Beach seat in Congress for the Securities and Exchange Commission. A perfect choice for the nefarious mission of bleeding the country dry—a dark art Cox learned from such bloodsuckers as swindler William E. Cooper and the late County Supervisor Tom Riley (who just might have been the vampire who sired the insatiable Coxula). Meanwhile, deep under his Laguna Niguel estate, another leech for lucre, corporate executive Henry Nicholas, is backdating, er, daydreaming about his billion-dollar fortune while snorting exotic substances with a harem of whores and bodyguards in his secret sex dungeon—in the fine OC tradition of savings-and-loan boss Charles Keating, who based his fraudulent empire in Irvine, lived like a Roman emperor, and then handed taxpayers a multibillion-dollar bloodbath. Will these children of the night let the country bleed out before a torch-wielding mob of cops and congressional investigators puts a stake through their fiendish plot?
