$2.2B Broadcom Smack

8;40 AM -- When it comes to charges related to stock options backdating scandals, chipset vendor Broadcom Corp. (Nasdaq: BRCM) set the bar high Tuesday evening, announcing charges totaling $2.2 billion for 1998-2005. (See Broadcom Tallies Restatements for the details.)

Can any of the other firms with dubious share award practices beat that total? We can't wait to find out...
