Exclusive – The Casey Family Business: PA’s Democrat Senator Has 3 Family Members Whose Activities Raise Corruption Concerns

Matthew Boyle 3 Mar 2023 Washington, DC

Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA), who is up for reelection in 2024 in the critical battleground state of Pennsylvania, appears to have violated a federal law meant to stop members of Congress from insider trading, Breitbart News has learned.

The law, the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge or STOCK Act, requires that members of Congress file disclosure forms within 30 days of a notice and within 45 days of a transaction of any stocks they or a significant other or dependent trade. One of Casey’s dependent children—the documents do not specify which one, but he and his wife have four adult daughters—on Aug. 31, 2017, sold between $1,001 and $15,000 worth of stock in FirstEnergy Corp. Casey did not file a periodic transaction report as required by federal law to be filed within 45 days of the sale until eight and a half months later on May 15, 2018.

Peter Schweizer, the president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) and senior contributor to Breitbart News, said this revelation is troubling. Schweizer’s 2011 book Throw Them All Out led to the passage of the STOCK Act in Congress—legislation that Casey voted for when it came up in the Senate—after revelations of significant levels of concerning financial transactions from Washington insiders in Congress were happening.

“It’s not asking much to ask our politicians to report their financial transactions and those of their children,” Schweizer told Breitbart News when asked to react to Casey’s apparent violation of the STOCK Act. “In fact they are required to by law. This sort of behavior only further undermines people’s trust in our government and leaders.”

In addition to his dependent child’s suspect stock trades in energy companies, Casey’s brother and sister are also engaged in activities that have raised ethical concerns regarding the longtime Democrat U.S. Senator’s conduct in office—concerns that run contrary to a carefully-crafted public image that Casey has presented to voters as someone deeply interested in rooting out corruption. Obviously, with these revelations about Casey’s family’s ethically concerning actions taking center stage, any 2024 campaign would thrust these matters front and center for voters who will also likely see very similar concerns with Democrat President Joe Biden’s family members deeply connected to the political influence industry.

His adult daughters are considered dependents? Yikes.
