ADLF Calls For Ethics Investigation into Senator Richard Burr Over Possible Criminal Conduct

The American Democracy Legal Fund is calling for an ethics investigation into Senator Richard Burr following a bombshell report alleging he may have used insider knowledge to make money for himself by selling off stock only a week before the stock market dropped due to the coronavirus pandemic. ADLF President Brad Woodhouse released the following statement calling for the investigation: 

“We are in a national crisis, and instead of using his office to serve his constituents, Senator Richard Burr appears to be using it to enrich himself. As Chair of the Intelligence Committee, Senator Burr has access to highly classified information. For him to dump stock at a profit only days before the stock market plummeted fails to pass the smell test. We call on the Senate Ethics Committee to begin an immediate investigation into this blatantly corrupt behavior.”
