    while truly unethical, and would be illegal if the guy worked in the white house, the point of this is that it is currently not illegal for congress, right?

    Trust me - that guy knew he was breaking the law.

    from the article:

    Current securities law and congressional ethics rules don't prohibit lawmakers or their staff members from buying and selling securities based on information learned in the halls of Congress.

    just clarifying....
