<a href=http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20050928/ap_on_go_co/frist_stock_1>The SEC has upgraded its investigation</a> into Bill Frist's sale of HCA stock shortly before the stock tanked following the release of news regarding, shall we say, disappointing earnings. It should also be noted that several HCA corporate officers including the CEO and the Treasurer sold off HCA shares to the tine of some $112 million during the same time that the good Senator ordered his shares liquidated. Didn't Martha Stewart do jail time for just the same thing?...You know?...Insider trading?...Tch..Tch...Tch...Looks like Billy boy could wind up doin' some time in Club Fed. Unless, like Dubbyuh, who dumped his shares in Harken Energy just before THAT stock tanked, AND while he was sitting on the company's audit committee, the chairman of the SEC was a close friend of the family and swept the whole issue under the rug. Do the ethical lapses of the Republican leadership disturb you? If not, your moral compass is in dire need of adjustment.
