The IRS is one organization that needs to be beefed the hell up.  If we actually collected all the taxes that companies owed, we probably wouldn't have a deficit right now.

Even assuming there is full restitution, the light penalty might make the crime a pretty rational gamble. If you get caught and convicted like this guy, you wind up behind, but surely some never get caught and the potential gain is many times the worst-case loss.
