    and couldn't possibly prove this in a court of law, but I'd say Whitehouse stands alone on this for the same reason we've seen Bernie Sanders and while they were Senators, Russ Feingold and Paul Wellstone stand alone.  They are/were public servants willing to at least occasionally put political principles above catering to the vanity and greed of the corporate elite that hold the true power in our society.  Just guessing...
