    I totally agree. Not only can they invest the donations they receive, they can invest it in corporations they're charged with overseeing, without recusing themselves.

    They buy that stock from existing shareholders, which means giving those shareholders money. They are getting money from corporations they oversee, which they are giving the money right back to.

    This practice should be criminal activity. It's a cesspool of corruption.
