Can someone give a list or general rule of thumb for which government

officials (elected or otherwise) are NOT allowed to invest in securities?

Don't alot of elected officials set up blind trusts to avoid many of the issues?

If I was an elected official and had to disclose holdings, I'd stick to
plain broad market index funds, so I could avoid an questions about my
investment holdings.

I believe Greenspan was only in short-term Treasuries, during his tenure, if I'm not mistaken.
