Update On Hyde Spy Scandal</B>

November 02, 1998

Last Monday on Democracy Now! we reported that House Judiciary Chairman Henry Hyde had hired a private eye to investigate Tim Anderson, an Illinois-based Independent Banking consultant who had been tracking Hyde’s dubious role as a bank-board member in the failure of Clyde Federal Savings and Loan. The sleepy Illinois S&L went belly-up in 1990, costing taxpayers over $67 million to bail it out.

The Congressional Accountability Project has called for a formal ethic investigation into Hyde.
