Political Intelligence Profiticians Posing as Politicians Receive Dr. Gruder’s Latest Integrity Disgrace Award

by Dr. David Gruder

 Integrity Revolution Integrity Disgrace Award 

Have you heard of Political Intelligence? It’s essentially stealing confidential business information that elected and appointed government officials have been provided for legitimate reasons, so this information can be used for profit. If a business person does this, it’s called "insider trading," which is punishable by hefty fines and jail terms. If a government official does this, it’s legal. That’s right: some elected and appointed government officials are legally lining their pockets by engaging in the equivalent of insider trading. Talk about a double standard!

I have coined a word for these particular politicians-with-integrity-deficits: "profiticians."

Why does it take a comedian like Jon Stewart of The Daily Show to expose profiticians? Don’t even get me started on that one. But, watch the videos below from The Daily Show and you’ll decide for yourself why profiticians have earned my latest Integrity Disgrace Award!

I don’t even think it’s necessary to explain why elected and appointed government officials who behave like "profiticians" instead of politicians are my latest Integrity Disgrace Award recipients.
