Congress: Trading stock on inside information? - CBS News This is an outrage. Martha Stewart was charged with insider trading--was cleared of that--but got caught lying about it--had to pay out big bucks--ended up in prison for several months--and we find out today--that our congressmen/women and senators get a free pass for something we get thrown in prison over. INSIDER TRADING--and it's something they do all of the time---making MILLIONS with it. So while we have the OWS whatever protester out there--maybe you really should start camping out at the capital building--because in reality--that is where the CORRUPTION IS.
