Macaca failed to report stock options to Congress

Seems like old Macaca might be involved in a little war profiteering.

Allen failed to report stock options

AP
Excerpt:
RICHMOND, Va. – For the past five years, Sen. George Allen has failed to tell Congress about stock options he got for his work as a director of a high-tech company. The Virginia Republican also asked the Army to help another business that gave him similar options.

Congressional rules require senators to disclose to the Senate all deferred compensation, such as stock options. The rules also urge senators to avoid taking any official action that could benefit them financially or appear to do so.

Those requirements exist so the public can police lawmakers for possible conflicts of interest, especially involving companies with government business that lawmakers can influence.

H.Ls. Take:
Have you ever heard the call of the Macaca bird, its a rare species from French Tunisia, it has a high pitched sqeal that goes Macacacacacacacaaaaaaaaaahhhhh. Next time you are out there in the French Tunisian Jungle listen for it.

    Why should he tell the truth about anything? He’s a Republicrat, truth is never allowed.

    What is sad is the Dem’s have done the same and you don’t seem to have a problem with that. Better yet wasn’t it William J Jefferson (Democrat Louisiana) who had $90,000 in his freezer from bribes along with a breif case that was givin to him containing $100,000 and others. And you want to tell me that the Rep’s aren’t telling the truth. You tell me the truth the Dem’s told the people of Louisiana. That isn’t all that Jefferson is charged with. Oh yeah and when was that aaaaaaaa 2006 yup and it went back before that. Yeah your Dem’s are the moral party. Please.

    Congressional support
    On May 4, 2006, the day after iGate CEO Vernon Jackson pleaded guilty to bribing Jefferson, Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) both stated that Jefferson should be investigated by the House ethics committee. Pelosi stated, “It is his private matter, and he should be investigated because of the stories that have been in the press and the guilty plea yesterday.” However, neither representative filed their own complaint with the ethics committee, which would have initiated the investigation process.
