Loeffler and Perdue boast that the Senate Ethics Committee exempted them from insider buying and selling. Besides …
"A Senator who says he or she has been acquitted by the Senate Ethics Committee should be taken with a grain of salt, ”Meredith McGehee, executive director of the Issue One monitoring group, told the newspaper. "The Senate Ethics Committee finds ethics violations about as often as an NBA umpire can call a travel or palm violation."
Perdue followed an early coronavirus briefing by buying stocks of personal protective equipment companies, while Loeffler responded by selling many stocks. That decision looked interesting when the market collapsed in the early days of the pandemic. Perdue also recently made news as a Senator, who has done the most stock deals in the past few years – 2,596 of them – including the companies he oversees in his Senate work.
Loeffler and Perdue also take great pride in avoiding Justice Department charges from Donald Trump-William Barr.
Maybe Georgia could do better than "not charged with insider trading"?
