Ken Griffin gave $2M to Kelly Loeffler, wife of NYSE CEO

Unusual Whales reports that Ken Griffin gave $2M to Kelly Loeffler's electoral campaign. This is not all that unusual for Ken, who is well known for giving millions of dollars out to politicians, but this time there's a clear conflict of interest, as Kelly Loeffler's husband is the CEO of the New York Stock Exchange.
