What an odd coincidence. And they all put their hands over their hearts and assure the public that they are as honest as the day is long. And the fact that they make millions while in office off these "lucky" trades is simply beyond credibility. They are corrupt. Thoroughly corrupt.

The CBS report is based on this book by Peter Schweizer:
