    This one's pretty shocking. But it is happening.


    In December 2016, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States approved the CHX deal. But in August, the SEC delayed action on the purchase and has offered no timeline for when it will make a decision.

    A group of U.S. investors hoping to buy the Chicago Stock Exchange is lobbying Congress to torpedo a rival, Chinese-backed acquisition proposal that is stalled at the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    Lobbyists representing “Exchange Capital LLC,” a special-purpose entity for a private-equity investor group, said they helped generate a Sept. 26 letter led by Rep. Robert Pittenger (R-N.C.) to the SEC raising "serious concerns" over the CHX acquisition.

    Exchange Capital is being represented by Adam Olsen of Sconset Strategies and Chas Thomas of Thorn Run Partners. Thomas is a former Pittenger staffer.

    Both lobbyists said they also asked members of the Senate Banking Committee to voice concerns with the CHX deal at a hearing with SEC Chairman Jay Clayton on Tuesday.

    I think they've been trying for a couple or three years. It should be dead by now, but it looks like the pols are just squeezing both sides for more bribes, is all.
