    Lets stay on topic (Bachus) now shall we? ;) The guy has been there since '93 too. He's addicted to perks.

    Bachus couldn't be guilty of insider trading by any accepted legal definition. Rangel's violations of tax law were so blatant that they made a mockery of his position as chairman. There's no comparison between the two cases.
