How about insider trading? Are you aware that Congress specifically exempted itself from insider trading laws? i.e. if you approach your Congressman and ask him to push your business towards the Pentagon (for example), he can run out, but a shit load of your stock, "suggest" that the Pentagon gives you a nice fat juicy contract, and then when your stock price goes up, he can dump the stock for huge profits with no legal ramifications whatsoever.
HOW THE FUCK IS THAT NOT CORRUPT? If you or I did that, it's a trip straight to the big house (like Martha Stewart)
