October 1977
National Review;10/14/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 40, p1152
The article comments on senators who have been defending U.S. Office of Management and Budget director Bert Lance in the press and on state senate elections. In the Lance affair, everyone who was involved came out looking like an idiot. Lance has made the mistake of putting the bureaucracy on the spot. His actions and life are being scrutinized by six federal organizations, namely, the U.S. Justice Department, the U.S. IRS, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the U.S. Federal Election Commission, and the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
