Bankers Form Super PAC: A New Vortex of Evil Opens in Fabric of the Universe

"Congress isn't afraid of bankers," adds Roger Beverage, the president and CEO of the Oklahoma Bankers Association. "They don't think we'll do anything to kick them out of office. We are trying to change that perception."
