When pressed further on how she missed the deadlines, Shalala, the House Democrat on the committee overseeing $500 billion in taxpayer money being used to help shore up businesses affected by coronavirus, emphasized that she understands the law.

“I missed the deadlines, and I have to take responsibility — personal responsibility for doing that. No one else is responsible except for me, and now I can file all of that,” said Shalala, a former health secretary in the Clinton administration. “But it’s not — I did file my disclosure reports, so everybody knew what my holdings were.”

The Miami Herald reports that Shalala is setting up a blind trust for her assets.

Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) have come under fire recently for stock trades made during the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic.
