Via Legal Insurrection:
Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island also made a flurry of trades in the days after the Paulson-Bernanke meeting with legislators.
At minimum, Whitehouse sold $250,000 in the stocks below between September 18-24, 2008. He may have sold as much as $600,000 in the stock below according to disclosures.
The stocks that were sold lost as much as 35% of their value within days of the sale.
In response, Senator Whitehouse (R-RI) denies he had anything to do with the sale and says it was all a coinky-dink.
This is an outrage! We should Occupy his front lawn until he confesses the truth and resigns.
What’s that? Whitehouse is a Democrat?
Oh, never mind.
