ThinkProgress has created a Frist Stock timeline that catalogues the key events in this emerging scandal. The timeline reveals that Frist faces at least four distinct problems:

1. Lying to the public.

2. A violation of Senate Ethics rules.

3. A Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation.

4. A Justice Department investigation.
