More Frist controversy

"An October 27 Roll Call article reported that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) is not distancing himself from the 'controversial' company founded by his father, HCA Inc., despite ongoing Securities and Exchange Commission and Justice Department investigations into the senator's sale of company stock last June, but the article failed to mention that the company had paid a record $1.7 billion to the federal government as settlement of charges for defrauding Medicaid and Medicare."
