Republicans: Was it okay for Perdue and Loeffler to break the law by profiting from confidential information via insider trading?


You know what would be a great idea; just ban sitting members of congress from owning individual stock in the first place.  That way, no trouble and no appearance of trouble.

Update 3:

@anonymous: what crimes are you referring to? care to name them?

Update 4:

@other anonymous: no they're not allowed to do "whatever they want with their money" --- insider trading is a crime.

    Not a Republican, but this is just the way elected officials do it. This is why they enter office as merely upper middle class and leave public office as multi millionaires. Seriously, take a look at the portfolios of any member of Congress and you'll find the same pattern. They even manage to manipulate state governments to do their bidding, i.e. Dianne Feinstein's husband is making $$$ off of a no bid contract to build California's imaginary high speed rail system and Nancy Pelosi's husband has experienced similar windfalls involving surplus USPS properties owing to his wife's corruption. This is just business as usual.

    Even if that were true it would be microscopic compared to the crimes the Democrats committed in the last month. 

    That would be like Ted Bundy complaining about someone jay waling.
