Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein has been caught failing to disclose shares owned by her husband.
Democrat Caught in Scandal
The 87-year-old California senator is reportedly willing to pay a fine after it was discovered that federal forms she submitted did not disclose her husband’s polling firm that he had purchased.
The Democrat has been married to her husband Richard Blum for over forty years and he bought over $50,000 worth of shares in The Generation Lab.
The firm is based in Washington, D.C. and is a polling and research firm that puts out studies involving trends and the young generation.
So Republican Dinesh D’Souza was sentenced to a maximum-security prison for giving away too much of his OWN money but when Feinstein gets caught red-handed it may be just a slap on the wrist if that.
Earlier this month, Feinstein is reported to have told the secretary of the Senate via a letter that her husband’s investment should have been reported weeks prior.
Doesn’t Seem Right
After being caught, the Democrat is willing to pay fines but no one has contacted her about actually doing so according to Business Insider.
A spokesperson for Feinstein told Fox Business that the Democrat senator first became aware of Blum’s investment in The Generation Lab when his employer conducted a review of his transactions. The investment was reported upon discovery, said the spokesperson.
“We can’t speak to why it had been previously overlooked but have been assured that personnel involved in her husband’s transactions are aware of the reporting requirements,” Feinstein’s spokesperson told Fox Business in a statement.
Not the First Controversy
Feinstein’s husband has brought controversy to the public eye before.
In early 2020, federal law enforcement officials questioned her about her husband’s decision to sell millions worth of biotechnology stock. This took place between January 31 and February 18.
According to her office, she called the question she was under “voluntary.” She also supposedly gave documents showing that she does not have a role in Blum’s finances.
Under Senate rules I report my husband's financial transactions. I have no input into his decisions. My husband in January and February sold shares of a cancer therapy company. This company is unrelated to any work on the coronavirus and the sale was unrelated to the situation.

If Feinstein wasn’t caught, it is probably safe to say she would have gotten away with it. Heck, she still might get away with it.
