Altogether the solidly built, graying mortgage banker re- fused to -answer 66 questions about his business and social dealings with Baker. The committee is investigat- ing charges that Baker was in- volved in a political payoff in w.hich Matthew H. McCloskey, Philadelphia builder and politi- cian, allegedly kicked back 000 for the 1960 Kennedy-John- son campaign fund. Charge Denied McCloskey denied the charge! and Baker refused to testify on Fifth Amendment grounds.
