These types of guys get their day in court and some will say theyll just hire good lawyers to get them off. You should know that the SEC has some of the most intelligent and shark-like attorneys this world has to office. Rest assured fellow 99%

To many liberals a mere accusation is enough to convict. Testimony from criminals is often suspect especially when there is a quid pro quo in play.

I have a radical idea. How about having a trial where all the evidence can be presented and let a jury decide his fate and then if a guilty verdict is rendered then people should weigh in. Doug Whitman has already been convicted in the court of irrational leftist opinion.

I remember the Frank Quatronne story. Poeple were like sharks circulating around the victim in a blood lust frenzy ready to eviscerate Quatronne. Of course he was innocent.

Unfortunately many liberals in their quest for income redistribution (taking away income from people who worked for it and giving it to people who haven't) joyously pass judgment on accomplished people because of their jealousy of success.

I don't know whether Mr. Whitman is guilty or not. But a mere accusation is not enough to render an informed opinion.
