DelBene betrays the Democratic Party, apparently

Which 35 House Democrats Just Joined the GOP to Try to Gut Dodd-Frank?

lists Washington Rep. Suzan DelBene among the turncoats.

Ultimately, the GOP-sponsored bill to roll back reforms failed, when enough Democrats voted against it to prevent the 2/3rds majority needed for it to pass as a suspension of rules.

Last I heard DelBene hasn’t committed to opposing TPP or the fast-tracking thereof, despite the Washington State Democratic Party platform’s opposition to TPP.  This is especially concerning because DelBene and her husband were senior executives at Microsoft, so presumably they still have stock. Shouldn’t they recuse themselves from vote concerning TPP, which would benefit Microsoft?
