The "Enron 3", [[Ken Lay]], [[Jeffery Skilling]], and [[Andrew Fastow]], the top officers of Enron were all convicted for their role in the collapse of Enron. Enron's accounting firm Arthur Andersen was convicted of obstruction of justice for its dealings in the event, and went from being one of the top five accounting firms in the world, to a mere shadow of its original stature. This is because the numerous civil suits against it, lack of credibility, and loss of clients in the Enron collapse. The name of the [[Houston Astros]]' baseball stadium, Enron Stadium, was changed to Minute Maid Field after the incident. Many documentaries, movies and books about the Enron Scandal have been created, one of the most notable is the movie, Fun with Dick and Jane, with a storyline loosely based around the scandal, even mentioning Enron in the credits.
In 2011, [[First Lady]] [[Michelle Obama]] scheduled a fundraising event in the mansion of a former Enron executive and billionaire for [[Presidential Election 2012|President Obama's 2012 re-election ]] asking for $10,000 per ticket to the event, or the “co-host level” contribution being $35,800.<ref>[http://www.humanevents.com/2011/10/28/obama-rakes-in-cash-from-lobbyists-enron-executives/ Obama Rakes In Cash From Lobbyists, Enron Executives,] John Hayward, ''Human Events'', 10/28/2011. </ref>
