Vaping Litigation: The Constitution going up in vapor

Trump’s top health official traded tobacco stock while leading anti-smoking efforts
The director of the Centers for Disease Control.

CDC director bought tobacco stock while in office
“The day after Fitzgerald purchased her tobacco stock, she toured the CDC’s Tobacco Laboratory to learn more about how chemicals in cigarettes harmed human health. When she was previously working for the Georgia Department of Public Health, Fitzgerald listed tobacco cessation as one of her public health priorities — despite then owning stocks in five major tobacco companies, including Philip Morris International and British American Tobacco.”

Or think they won’t get caught. Classic.
