At the time of Clark's departure,
the FHLBB had become the Office of Thrift Supervision.
McDougal already had resigned from the board and from his

directors and officers of thrifts are subject.

Although he was not a candidate for political office
during the period 1983-86, Tucker had incurred some $250,000 in debt in the
course of a failed run for Governor in 1982.
 Clark apparently was referring to a $260,000 loan in
which the purchase price of the property was $125, 000, with the remaining
$135,000 allegedly earmarked for a market feasibility study, when they actually
were diverted to pay an unrelated real estate loan which Tucker had co-signed
at Savers Federal. This transaction was the subject of RTC criminal referral
The function of examiners is to classify assets, not

Clark felt that he would recall such a meeting if he had
been aware of it at the time of the examination.
After the meeting, Clark and Young joked that "butter
would not melt in his [McDougal's] mouth."
Documents show that Dallas supervisory agent Chip
Kiesewetter invited Schaffer to the meeting.
Madison Guaranty was examined in January 1984 and then
again in March 1986.
Clark apparently is referring to the $30,000 Whitewater
entry for an engineering study.
