How many times can Elon Musk press his luck with regulators? That seems to be the $64,000 question that Musk is intent on finding out.
It was just hours after the headline broke the the SEC could be investigating Musk over Tweets he put out related to cryptocurrency Dogecoin that Musk - who formerly had told the SEC he didn't respect them, and to "suck Elon's c*ck" - yet again took to Twitter to taunt regulators.
Responding to a Tweet casting doubt about an SEC investigation and referring to Musk as "Emperor Musk", Musk responded that he "hopes" the SEC does open an investigation into his Tweets.
"It would be awesome," Musk wrote. We're sure Tesla shareholders would feel the same way.
