Robert O'Harrow Jr. and Dan Keating had a great story today looking at lawmakers who heavily invest in the sectors they regulate or advocate. Ron Paul, for instance, is both leading a political movement based on increasing the value of gold and investing millions of dollars into gold-mining operations.

And Paul isn't alone, as you can see in this graphic The Post whipped up to go along with the story.
