An investigation Frist can't avoid

from salon

As we noted earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist seems to have pulled off a suspiciously well-timed dumping of stock in his family's big healthcare business. It turns out that we weren't the only ones interested in the story: The Securities and Exchange Commission and federal prosecutors are now investigating Frist's sale of his stock in HCA, Inc. According to UPI, the Justice Department has just served a subpoena on HCA. The company says it believes the subpoena requests documents related to Frist's sale of the stock in July -- just before the stock price took a dive on a bad earnings forecast.

Good to see the government is only one step behind Salon these days.

I'm sitting here staring at my monitor smiling. I can't get over these guys. They'll stop at nothing.

I hope the '06 elections get us closer to control of Congress. I know how difficult this will be, what with the GOP making their own voting machines and in control of redistricting, but the only way we have a chance is to get control of the Congress.

So long as they control all three branches of Gov't, they will keep doing whatever they want to.
