(Boulder, CO) – Eric Weissmann, candidate for Congress in Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District, Wednesday called on Congressman Jared Polis to return to the U.S. Treasury profits he made by insider trading.
"Colorado voters and American taxpayers are the victims of Jared Polis’ insider trading,” stated Weissmann. “To use his position of trust in the Congress to obtain inside information about legislation, and perhaps even to influence that legislation, right before his stock trades benefited from specific legislative provisions calls into question the integrity of everything Congressman Polis has done in Congress. In this case, there are technical provisions of Obamacare, enacted by the narrowest of margins, which may be law solely to benefit Polis’ massive portfolio."

"'We don't have to lose this time,' Weissmann said."
