George Allen didn't disclose stock options

Maybe all Georges who are former governors and wish to be President "forget" to dislose stock dealings with the SEC? This George claims he made no money on the stock options he exercised, so no harm, no foul.

But doesn't it matter that its illegal not to make such disclosures? Surely, the common man would pay some severe fines, if not serve time for illegal insider trading and/or non-disclosure. Even "uncommon women" (Martha Stewart) would (did) serve time for failing to take the proper measures.
