That's a lot of links there, but zero of them mention the issue of Rahm's insider trading deal. (the WSJ piece might, but I can't access it to find out).

What you've got here are 6 links spread over four years about Rahm, or about 1.5 stories per year, and zero mentions of the stock deal that was the basis for my comparison. So thank you for proving my point.

And no Rahm is not running for prez, but he was in the WH and still is rather close to the guy who is not just running, but serving as prez.

I see you keep on moving the goals posts. This is what you said in your OP

Rahm Emanuel was on the board of directors of Freddie Mac in between serving in the Clinton admin and running for the US house in 2001. When he was named Chief of Staff for Obama in 2008, I don't recall any mention of his connection to Freddie.
I gave you 6 links of connection, and you still want more, lol. Well here is one that came out a week ago. I don't like Rahm, but your thread is foolish and your responses are even worse.

No, again, I just want ONE link. Your first post quoted my post about Rahm's insider trading issue. None of your links cover that issue. Just one, c'mon you can do it.

However I bet I can find a dozen links about Newt's consulting bucks from Freddie in the wake of the Bloomberg story from a few days ago about Newt working for Freddie. So don't bother, you know you're going to lose this one no matter what.
