I reported for the Daily Oklahoman when Kaiser bought Bank of Oklahoma in receivership from FDIC for around $30 million (if memory serves), saving another bank from tanking in the 1980s.
He has built it in a billion dollar plus banking company and created thousands of jobs in the process. He and his father built Kaiser Francis oil company from the ground up to finance other acquisitions, including BOK. So, jealous critics, if you don't know what you're talking about, shut up.

So this is the system. run the most corrupt bank in the state if not in the nation and then give a few bucks to a charity and put a few statues in the park and people will forget what a crook you are.
