Ex-execs of Tenn. Gov Bill Haslam-owned chain charged

An indictment says a former top executive of the truck stop chain owned by Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam advised sales staff to "Say one thing, do another," when it came to dealing with customers.
    
Former Vice President of Sales John "Stick" Freeman is one of eight Pilot Flying J former executives and sales employees charged with conspiracy to defraud the trucking companies who bought their fuel. The charges came in an indictment unsealed in federal court in Knoxville on Tuesday.
    
The indictment outlines a scheme that took place over a five-year period in which sales staff often promised customers one discount but gave them a different, lesser one. It offers several examples of employees and their bosses discussing the need to coordinate the lies they were telling customers so as not to get caught.
