Paul Kirk on Health Care
"It's going to be a continual public appearance of a conflict of interest," said a spokesperson from Public Citizen, a nonpartisan watchdog group in Washington, "even if Paul Kirk is virtuous enough to not care how it impacts his own finances."
Mr. Kirk said Thursday that he was resigning from the Hartford board immediately, and several ethics lawyers said he would not be violating Senate rules by voting on the health care legislation.
