Once thought to be possible presidential material, or perhaps on Bob Dole's ticket. He failed to earn even the Democratic nomination for his second term, and devoted his resources to business and leisure. It is possible that he neglected his businesses too much, and his two companies -- an oil change firm and a savings and loan -- both fell into financial trouble. High living expenses did not help. Daniel Walker was sentenced in 1987 to seven years prison and five years probation for fraud, perjury, and making false statements.
