News keeps rolling in about senior Fed officials trading stock when they have extremely valuable inside information. Tally grows of federal judges who did not recuse themselves when they had a financial interest in a case they were hearing. Oh yeah, Chief Justice Roberts of the Supreme Court had his own failure-to-recuse oopsie.
This round of lack-of-integrity-by-senior-officials news reports, federal edition:
- 800 more failure-to-recuse by federal judges. The Chief Justice did not recuse himself until after oral arguments in a case where he had a mere $100K personal investment in one of the litigants.
- Vice Chair of the Fed resigns after news leaks out of timing for his stock trades.
- Previously, two regional bank presidents of the Fed resigned this past October.
