Gottheimer violates the STOCK Act
Josh Gottheimer has violated the federal STOCK Act, Business Insider reports.
Gottheimer – one of the most prolific stock traders in Congress – failed to report an exchange of up to $15,000 of stock in Independent Bank Corp. from last November.
And while Gottheimer said in February that he would establish a blind trust for his assets, Business Insider notes Gottheimer has yet to formally establish one.
NRCC Comment: “Josh Gottheimer’s stock trading habits that have now resulted in a violation of federal law are serious cause for concern that he’s using his taxpayer-funded position to benefit himself financially.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Samantha Bullock
