On the same day that we published Throw Them All Out by Peter Schweizer, Senator Scott Brown introduced the STOCK Act to stop insider trading in Congress. This was in the wake of the 60 Minutes story that aired on Sunday that was based on the research Schweizer did for Throw Them All Out. It’s amazing to see the effect a book and an author can have.
This Newsweek piece gives you a bit of an idea just how much is revealed in the book, but check out the book itself and you’ll be astonished at the number of congresspeople involved (Schweizer was not afraid to name names!) and the extent of the corruption.
