|John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi in share dealing controversy|
Author Peter Schweizer, who has written a book Throw Them All Out, tells Today business presenter Simon Jack that US politicians have taken part in short selling as well as aggressively trading following these secret government briefings. He names House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California), House Financial Services Committee Chairman Spencer Bachus (R-Alabama), former Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Illinois) and ex-Sen. Judd Gregg (R-New Hampshire) as among those attacked for their participation in alleged insider trading and “soft corruption” as he puts it.
If all this is true then the American people know what to do, I would hope. Vote out these insider dealers and soft corrupters and get yourselves some decent folk who don't want or need to feather their own nests in such a sneaky way.
