Rep. Nancy Pelosi

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband in 2008 participated in an exclusive IPO for VISA at the same time that a bill that would effect credit card companies was making its way through the House. Her husband purchased 5,000 shares initially, then more later. Mrs. Pelosi and her husband profited in a major way (still owning thousands of shares that are worth twice what they paid), although she vehemently denies she has done anything wrong, and gets visually nervous and upset when she is asked about it.
