We put out a story the other day about the enigma that is Sunny Balwani, Theranos’s former No. 2 executive who’s now fighting charges of fraud levied by the SEC. We searched far and wide for an image of Balwani, but the best we could turn up was a grainy photo of him from his 1988 college yearbook.
The day after the story came out, though, an eagle-eyed sleuth on Twitter pointed us to something better: Video footage of Balwani talking up Theranos in front of an Arizona legislative committee in March 2014. (That was around the time Theranos, then at its peak valuation of $9 billion, started opening testing centers in Walgreens pharmacies in Arizona.)
