Yesterday Raj Rajaratnam began serving an 11 year sentence after being convicted for insider trading. If he was a member of Congress however, he wouldn’t even be charged for doing the same thing . Congress is immune from prosecution for insider trading. If some members of the Congress get their way though, there may be a ban on this privilege possibly in the near future but, first, they face an up hill battle. No doubt some members are opposed to or don’t think a ban is necessary? Is this hypocritical of congress to make themselves immune from obeying a law that private citizens have gone to prison for?
