    You do have to appreciate the irony of the OP's avatar "I'm with stupid" pointing to his bull**** source.

    Our media really is pathetic. Major outlets were reporting on this story without doing even the most basic fact checking. If you are going to accuse someone of insider trading, you should actually bother to look at trades before and after the alleged incident to look for a difference in normal trading behavior. News organizations are becoming little better than random bloggers.

    Now, it wasn't illegal at the time and people on both sides of the aisle were participants in activities such as these, but it just doesn't seem right does it?
    No, it doesn't. And I applaud your honesty in pointing out it's done by both sides.

    The real story should be that Congressmen be required to have blind investment trusts for as long as they hold office. This kind of thing is done all the time.

    Reagan is dead, Bush is eating BBQ somewhere in Texas. Barry is in charge and has been so for the past 3.5 years. Time to move on.

    No, it wasn't illegal and it seems that all our rulers have been doing this. They not only have 9insider information, they adapt legislation to benefit their investments.

    They are ALL doing this. At the same time they upgrade their benefits and stuff their pockets with bribes, favors and "campaign donations". They've been doing this since like forever. They rob us blind and laugh at us.

    You sheep better get used to it. The reason people become politicians is to get rich. Not one of them gives a rat's ass about us. Some of them take up "causes" but it's all just Hollywood for ugly people.

    appears what he did was (then) legal
    unethical, trading on insider information, but legal (for congresscritters)

    so much for an assessment of his character
    no wonder romney chose him
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    what he did is still legal. the funds were bought and sold outside of his control.

    The biggest offender thats been outed is Nancy Pelosi. So scandalous that Congress lost their sweet deals and have to find another raping method.
