Goldman Sachs sics lawyers on Colbert

It turns out that Goldman Sachs has lawyers.

When Stephen Colbert threatened to hold one of its partners’ credit cards hostage, the company’s Office of Global Security, which the comedian describes as a euphemism for “assassination squad,” demanded its return.

As we wrote on Tuesday, a writer on Colbert Report found the credit card on the street last week.

Colbert had threatened to reveal the card number, one digit at a time, until its owner, Buckley T. Ratchford, appeared on the show to discuss Wall Street bonuses.

So on Tuesday night’s show, Colbert admitted defeat and promised to send it back - right after he swiped the card on a credit card machine.

“I don’t really need it any more,” he said.
