I think you know the answer to that. The branches of gov't make the rules... so everyone goes unpunished. Ajit Pai for falsifying public polls for net neutrality, Pelosi (and many others on both sides of the aisle) for stocks, Trump for business earnings tied to public office, and the list could go on and on.

And now, since gov't and corporate worlds are so incestuous... corporate executives are afforded the same immunity. See, the aforementioned Ajit Pai as a perfect example. He has hopped between corporate employment and public "service" for his entire working life.

At this point, until Citizens United is overturned and lobbying is outlawed, I'm done with politics in our country. I voted against the incumbent in every election since 2012 and will continue to do so until the above criteria are met. There's a special place in Hell reserved for politicians. All of them. /rant
