"The Frist Stock Sale Timeline"

This summer, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) abruptly sold his shares of the family hospital corporation, HCA Inc., just a month before a company announcement sent the stock price plummeting.

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.
