Charles Keating Jr. dies

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- A Cincinnati native who was the center of the savings and loan scandal of the late 80's has died.

Charles Keating Jr. was first known here as an anti-pornography activist in the 60's and 70's before becoming a close associate of billionaire Carl Lindner.  After leaving Cincinnati, he ran Lincoln Savings and Loan in Arizona and used loosened restrictions to make fraudulent investments.
S&L's collapse cost taxpayers 3 billion dollars.  Keating served 4.5 years in prison.
He died yesterday in Phoenix at the age of 90.
