Buckley Jr., William F.
October 1977
National Review;10/14/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 40, p1194
The article depicts an imaginary investigative case involving the U.S. senators and Bert Lance, former president of two banks. The U.S. Senators are evaluating Lance's banking conduct. According to the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, a loan in excess of $10,000 by a company to one of its employees must be listed in the annual proxy statement of a corporation. The article visualizes Lance occupying the judge's chair, and the 17 U.S. senators sitting in front of him pleading their cases.
