Morning Reads for Friday, March 19, 2020

Happy Friday from Atlanta! Theresa here, filling in for our favorite Ginny. I don’t have it in me to give the lastest numbers on anything. You can find that scrolling the inter-webs. I did my darnedest to find some happy things to share with you-even though it’s all because of COVID-19.

We’re quarantined until March 30 and while it’s not all sunshine and roses or a constant party, by any stretch, I still like my husband and child. It’s possible I may donate my husband to the CDC at some point, but for now, he’s safe.

If you google Kelly Loefller, the top result is an ad, calling her “A Political Outsider.”
The spell check suggestion for Loeffler is Woefuller.

Questions for political and financial insiders.

Kelly Loeffler seems to suggest she and her husband have their stock holdings in a blind trust, without actually saying so. Does anyone out there know for sure if they do?

If a Rep or Sen has holdings in a blind trust, do they still need to make a financial report?

When does Doug Collins’ self-quarantine end?

I think the description she has used is that her trading decisions are made “independently”, and that she’s said it’s the same system used prior to being appointed Senator, which is not a blind trust.

I thought I heard that she essentially just empowers her broker to make decisions. Which wouldn’t exclude her from directing decisions too.
But the personal financial disclosures should still include all assets even if in a blind trust.
