Rep. Diana Harshbarger, a Republican from Tennessee, failed to properly disclose more than 700 stock trades that together are worth at least $728,000 — and as much as $10.9 million, according to an Insider analysis of newly filed congressional records.

Harshbarger's late disclosures involved stock trades by herself and her husband, Robert Harshbarger, between early January and June.

Those trades involved the stock of dozens of companies, some of which vie for federal government contracts or spend six or seven figures each year to lobby for favorable laws and regulations.

"This is yet another example of a lawmaker ignoring the STOCK Act by failing to report a large volume of stock trades without consequence," Payne said.

Insider and other news organizations have this year reported numerous examples of federal lawmakers violating the STOCK Act.

In addition to Harshbarger, lawmakers who this year appear to have violated the STOCK Act's transparency provisions include:.

Former Rep. Harley Rouda, a Democrat of California who's attempting a comeback, also failed to properly disclose stock trades. »
