AP: Allen didn't disclose stock options By SHARON THEIMER and BOB LEWIS, Associated Press Writers
18 minutes ago



RICHMOND, Va. - For the past five years, Sen. George Allen (news, bio, voting record), 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.

9. Comedian George Burns gave us the classic movie, "Oh God."
Senator George Allen (R-VA) gives us things to be disgusted about.

5. Maybe not for long with this new bombshell.
This is illegal, I'm hoping.

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.

Allen's stock options date to the period from January 1998 to January 2001 when Allen was between political jobs and had plunged into the corporate world.

8. George Allen definitely violated Senate rules.
Whether there is enough evidence that he violated criminal laws to get an indictment, I don't know.

Not after this.


Truth be told JIm Webb was well positioned before this (5 points down +/- 4%. He is now rolling in cash ad the DSCC is goinf to bring everyone to town to campaign for him in these last four weeks.


Allen is toast.

15. Yes, ideally the combination of things George Allen has done...
