I bet the hearing reviewing the evidence received more than the usual number of spectators.
Wonder if she referred to them as her Heisman Trophies?

Actually, Arthur found it, and her name was Hess. I only recall it as I needed a whip and chair to handle that particular tax law meeting, and later worked with the IRS attorney on a task force. Nice guy.
