Interesting. I'm guessing they were big buyers in the preferred shares of ET. This gives them a vested interest in keeping the gas and oil flowing through pipelines. That's not a bad thing from my perspective.
Also having the tic toc followers understand that oil may be a good investment after all is always a good thing.
In a way it's kinda funny that a politician's husband may garner more following than investing experts :) I loved the article.
"If the situation is that the public has lost so much trust in government that they think ... the stock trades of members are based on corruption, and that [following that] corruption could benefit [them]. ... We have a significant problem," said Kedric Payne, senior director of ethics at the Campaign Legal Center."
Yeah I'm in the camp that has zero trust in politician's honesty/integrity.
