Let’s watch and see

The news is out: [NEW YORK (AP) — A former congressman should serve nearly five years in prison for insider trading, especially after coming to represent “the cynical idea that those in power who make the laws are not required to follow them,” prosecutors said Monday.
Christopher Collins, 69, is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday after the Republican pleaded guilty in October to conspiracy to commit securities fraud and lying to law enforcement officials about feeding inside information about a biotechnology company to his son.
His lawyers say their “humbled, penitent and remorseful” client should face no time behind bars.]

The law should be applied equally.
