Read the details.

Lets say a member of congress ignores the Insider Trading Ban and does it anyway.

What happens?

Do they get prosecuted by the Justice Department or do they simply get slapped on the

wrist by some internal committee?


Good question.

I'm trying to find the actual language.

Congress "members" may have some kind of back door immunity.

The "others" may not.

very confusing.


ETA: this may be the bill that was signed
S.2038 -- STOCK Act (Enrolled Bill [Final as Passed Both House and Senate] - ENR)

."they" did vist my dad after he posted what a Jackass our Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien was to his PMO site..(Prime Ministers Office)..lol..my father stated Chretien was a pig at the trough of the Lobbyists and deserved no more respect than that of a pig..yeah he was visited by the RCMP the next day to determine his threat status.




Jean Chretien was one of Canada's best Prime Ministers. When President Bush was rattling the sabres of war and threatened "either your with us or against us" he stood tall against the war in Iraq. He also brought Canada's finances almost into the black under Finance Minister Paul Martin. What other pussy leader could defend himself against a physical attack like the Honourable Jean Chretien!
