Enron Corp. founder Kenneth Lay and former CEO Jeffrey Skilling say potential jurors’ answers to questionnaires in their fraud and conspiracy case are so vitriolic the men can’t get a fair trial in Houston.

Prospective jurors called Skilling a “high-class crook,” who “would lie to his mother if it would further his cause.” He “projects a high sleaze factor,” he’s a “thief,” and a “cheater,” according to a filing Wednesday in which his lead attorney, Daniel Petrocelli, asked again to move the trial to another city.
