Congressman Chris Collins of New York's 27th District was indicted yesterday on charges of insider trading, along with his son, and his son's fiancee's father.
Collins has been under investigation by the House Ethics Committee since 2017, so the charges weren't entirely a surprise.
Thus far, he has plans to remain on the ballot for the fall's general election, where he'll face Democrat Nate McMurray, but should he survive the challenge, get re-elected and be convicted in office...well,
What happens next?
Explaining further is Len Cutler, he's a professor of political science from Siena College.
