WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 22: Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Schapiro (L) and SEC Inspector General David Kotz testify before a joint hearing by the House Financial Services Committee Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee TARP, Financial Services and Bailouts of Public and Private Programs Subcommittee September 22, 2011 in Washington, DC. The committees are investigating an apparent conflict of interest of the SEC's former general counsel, David Becker, who advised the S.E.C. on how it should deal with Ponzi scheme mastermind Bernard Madoff’s investors even though he and his family inherited a Madoff account in his mother’s estate.
