Hewlett-Packard's Chief Executive Officer Mark Hurd and its former chairwoman, Patricia Dunn, are expected to testify before a Congressional subcommittee Thursday. The House Energy and Commerce subcommittee is investigating HP's spying on board members.

RENEE MONTAGNE, Host:

NPR's Scott Horsley reports.

SCOTT HORSLEY: While some of HP's tactics may have been illegal, DeGette says, others were merely sleazy.

DIANA DEGETTE: It really is the stuff of made-for-TV movies: having board members followed, having their country homes under surveillance, trying to lure reporters into divulging sources and so on. It really seems to be over the top.

HORSLEY: Scott Horsley, NPR News.
