Some regulators noted the danger posed by these deregulations and pushed for more oversight, but Congress refused. This may be due, in part, to the Keating Five, five Senators Dennis DeConcini, Alan Cranston, John Glenn, Don Riegle and John McCain who had received, for both themselves and for groups they supported, well over $1 million from Keating in the 1980s as favors and political contributions. They later met twice with regulators who were investigating American Continental Corporation, in an attempt to end the investigation. (In 1991, they would be rebuked to various degrees by the Senate Ethics Committee.) That was a S&L/Banking scandal. Today we are going through a Sub Prime Mortgage Crisis, which is causing another banking crisis, and it was all caused by the same thing that caused the Keating 5 scandal, GOP Deregulations!!! No oversite! And people think John is the safer bet on the economy? I dont believe it. The Corporate Media is sure doing a good job for John. Think about how much people talk about Rezko. Rezko aint got nothing on Charles Keating.
