Rouda’s Pattern of Lies and Corruption Catching Up as SECOND Failure to Disclose Stock Transactions Exposed by Media
Huntington Beach, CA – Taxes aren’t the only thing Harley Rouda cheated on recently. According to Business Insider, Harley Rouda has once again violated federal law by failing to disclose stock transactions made during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic while in Congress last year.
From Business Insider:
“But it appears Rouda, a Democrat from California, violated a provision of the federal STOCK Act that’s designed to make lawmakers’ stock trades more transparent.
Rouda recently disclosed that his wife in May 2020 purchased up to $15,000 worth of Amazon stock, then sold the same amount worth of Amazon shares a week later, according to a new congressional filing. She also sold up to $15,000 in Tesla stock in June 2020.
The disclosures, which stem from a time when Rouda still served in Congress, are about 11 months tardy.”
“Harley Rouda lost in November because Orange County voters realized he is a tax cheat and liar, and now we learn his corruption goes even deeper – once again violating federal law in order to avoid disclosing stock transactions of massive corporations,” said Michelle Steel Spokesperson Lance Trover.
Last October, Rouda was caught by the media for violating the STOCK Act and was forced to pay a fine for his lack of transparency.
Today’s revelation of yet another violation of federal law caps two months of Rouda’s lies and corruption taking center stage.
