PlatinumDealbreaker, Penis-Proud Former Energy CEO With Ties To Platinum Partners Pleads Guilty To Tax Fraud:

Remember Gary Mole?

Well, the the wacky Aussie with a proclivity for pulling his pecker out at the dinner table and a very intriguing link to Platinum Partners seems to have found himself in another pickle.

The former chief executive officer of a company linked to troubled hedge fund manager Platinum Partners was convicted of criminal tax fraud on Wednesday, New York’s attorney general said in a statement.

Gary Mole, who led Glacial Energy Holdings Inc before it went bankrupt in 2014, pleaded guilty to diverting more than $18.5 million in taxable income from Glacial’s New York unit to a mining business in the Democratic Republic of the Congo from 2006 through 2008.
