I remember reading that some of his sponsors are going to chase him and demand he repay the lucrative sums of money paid to him to endorse their products.

What I'm not sure about is if those same companies will declare how much they in turn received in profits on sales from LA's endorsements; and if they can put a figure on it whether they will in turn pass that on to say, charities or other not-for-profit organisations? After all, his sponsors have profited far more than they paid him. All of them are now tainted by his blood money, no?

I know it's not in the same league but quite a few years ago, the EU chased after some Swiss banks who had built up substantial cash reserves on the money and treasures deposited with them by the Nazis during the 1930s and 1940s.
