I cannot tell you how shocked I was when I heard on the news that Rep. Chris Collins, his son and his son’s future father-in-law were arrested and charged with insider trading. Mr. Collins, shame on you if you are guilty and then lied to the FBI.
With the evidence presented on the news by the various government agencies, the odds are stacked against him. I agree with Mayor Byron W. Brown and others that Collins should resign from office. He needs to focus on his defense. I don’t think he can do that and serve the people of his district effectively.
I wish Collins well. He has a long, hard road ahead of him. Good luck, sir.
