    I don't know if Burr is guilty of insider trading or not, nor do I care. However, the wearing of a mask with UNC on it is unpardonable. That alone ought to get him some time in jail. Sorry Richard, hope you wind up in a cell somewhere with a bunch of NCSt and Duke fans...Hey mods , if this is too political , just delete it.

    I foresee a thread full of positive comments. Fellow Duke fans lifting each other up and everyone being respectful of each other's opinions. But hey, I am a cockeyed optimist. Oh and Burr should go to:

    You might say I am a guy who got himself mixed up in the high stakes game of world diplomacy and international intrigue. ;)

    No need for it to be political. 4 being looked at. 3 GOP, 1 Dem. If they cheated, especially at a time like this, throw the book at them if the evidence dictates.

    And yes, the mask makes it worse.

    Anyone who cheats the system this way deserves serious prison time. I don't care what letter is next to your name on the ballot box.

    I can't imagine this being poorly received... the guy wore a UNC mask. Would ANYONE on this forum defend the guy?

    Edwards is a toolbag. We have several people who are in the political realm of things that are known as habitual cheaters and yet have universal love among their supporters though.

    Not sure why you tagged me as I don’t care about politics all that much. I’m not a brainwashed sheeple like many Leftists here and as intense and paranoid Tin hat gents as couple of hard core right wingers here.

    When you bring politics in, one generally leads with “feeling” over fact. See Perspective: you could literally show how the cdc classification change brought forth a padding/inflation of deaths with covid. Doesn’t matter though - can’t be true because one side says the gov/ media doesn’t lie, and the other believes our POTUS will save us and correct it lol.

    @pisgah101 @Dad2ze look at ‘em jump on the OP like they did on that FB pic hahaaa

    When did he actually dump the stock? I really don't know. I think that it was weeks after being briefed, but I could be wrong. And it appears that Burr is not wealthy at all relative to other Senators. If I knew that my portfolio were going to plummet, I don't think that I could sit on my hands and do nothing. I would probably find a more discreet way than selling 29 individual stocks, but I would find a way to look out for myself

    Burr is officially toast as an NC politician. If the insider trading to dump thousands of $ in stocks prior to COVID dirdnt do it, the UNC mask does it! Never would he get an ABC vote again! OFC

    Not that, i just really did not intend for this to be a political BS post. Just making the point of the mask he was wearing. Yes, I have a problem with it just as i have on for a certain female liberal congress member doing the same thing, but not getting the press old Richard has. Again, not meaning to start a political post. I try to keep my political views off social media or sports sites, such as this one.

    And she's now more popular than ever. Maybe Burr should do a fishing show with Method Man after he gets out of prison.

    He deserves his day in court, like the other 3. (It does look like there is reason to prosecute.) If convicted, they should be made examples of. More likely, they reach some deal that keeps them out of jail and keeps most of the money they made.

    Seems like the stock market is high enough even now to make his sell off even more foolish. Guess he has enough money either way. Wonder if he bought back in at 18,000.

    I think they have decided not to pursue the other two.

    Last year he announced that he was retiring from public office and would not seek re-election.

    If he were a member of the other party the media would be giving him the benefit of doubt and probably defending him.

    Interesting how many members of Congress (both parties) have become multi millionaires while in office. How is this possible? No way is this possible
    on their congressional salary and maintaining a residence in DC.

    Maybe time for term limits.

    Experience is a benefit, but how effective are these congressman after so many years. I worked for a private company that were big supporters of Burr and he made several visits to our plant.

    I would almost be ok with no term limits if we could get rid of Gerrymandering and dark money/Citizens United. Both are very bad for both sides true mission.

    Congress does allow for a certain amount of income for outside activities.
    And I can't let the attack on the liberal media pass. Given how strong Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and the NY Post are, the "conservative media"(which at least for Fox should be called propaganda), gets plenty of air time. And, remember, The NY Times ran article after article about Hillary's email without making it clear that all she was violating was a state department internal directive.
