Battle of the stock options

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on August 4, 2010

Things are heating up in the race between Senator Russ Feingold and Ron “Tony Hayworth” Johnson. The latest round of blows deal with the stocks each candidate owns.

RoJo is still having problems with not knowing what to do with his BP stock. (It is hard for Republicans to part with a dime, much less hundreds of thousands of dollars.) RoJo’s flip-flopping hit the national scene recently:

But Senator Feingold has his own issues with hanging onto stock he owns. To explain it away, he issued this statement:

Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend today’s Green Bay Packers annual shareholder meeting. However, I want to make it clear that I will not be divesting my one share in the Packers. Not because it’s the only stock I own, or because market conditions predict a Super Bowl, but because I am a committed Packer fan whether they are up or down.”
– U.S. Senator Russ Feingold
