I think this is a pretty sensible take on Aubrey and his latest PR mess:
Wednesday, in a story from Reuters, came revelations that Aubrey McClendon, chief executive of Chesapeake Energy, had borrowed more than $1.1 billion against his personal stakes in oil and gas wells controlled by Chesapeake.
The size of the loans is pretty shocking (equal to more than one-tenth of Chesapeake’s total long-term debt), as is the clear and undeniable implication that McClendon is up to his eyeballs in conflicts that should lead every shareholder to question whether he has their interests or his own at heart. At one point on Wednesday investors drove down Chesapeake shares more than 10%. They closed down 5.5% on Wednesday, and have fallen by half since last August, hammered by debt loads and low natural gas prices
