Yes they should be upheld to same standards as anyone else. They should not be able to use there position to financially benefit them selves. Such as knowi g when to buy stocks due to govt contract release. Personally they shouldnt be able to buy any stocks while holding office only mutual funds. Second mayne this is why politician goes to washinton with net worth hundered thou then leaves office as multi millionaire. Look at clintons and obamas never worked an honest day i. There lives yet worth millions. Remember hilliary said they were broke when left whitehouse.
