More News About Frist's HCA Stock
Bill Frist apparently hasn't given up his dream of running for president, as evidenced by this "exploratory meeting with local power brokers" in Miami. While he's on the campaign trail, he'll have plenty of opportunities to explain his ethical missteps.
Investigators are already questioning Frist's suspiciously timed stock sale, which occurred despite his assurances that his family stock was held in a blind trust so as not to influence his Senate votes. The trust wasn't as blind as he wanted voters to believe, but now the AP reveals that his brother controlled a family investment partnership that accumulated HCA stock. Frist owns a share of that partership and earned more than a quarter million dollars from it over a recent four year period.
