U.S. Senators get lucky with stock picks

  1. Unlike other federal employees, members of Congress are not required to recuse themselves when they have a financial interest in an issue they are legislating.

    Nothing more needs to be said.


    Just for the heck of it, a Congressperson has an account at any brokerage. Ya think brokers or the entire firm is not going to make the same trades as when the Senator trades a particular issue. Of course they will. Probably good business to give the Senator a few trades n/c.
