An Interesting Thought About The Wall Street Bailout Bill: Do Any In Congress Have A Financial Interest?

I'm sure there are websites out there that have this information. Somewhere, there has to be records of whether or not Representatives or Senators own stock or otherwise have any kind of financial interest in the Wall Street institutions that are being bailed out under this bill.

I would be very interested in seeing those records and comparing them to the voting record of the entire Congress, particularly for those who vote "Yes."

If any member of Congress did have any financial interest in any institution that is about to recieve Federal monies, that would be a major conflict-of-interest and said member of Congress should have recused him/herself from voting.

If there are such connections, I wonder if the entire bill can be invalidated or declared unconstitutional?

It would certainly be an interesting exercise to see who has investments in these places.
