Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf’s grilling by bipartisan members of the Senate Banking Committee this week followed revelations of a sales culture run amok for years at the giant bank.

Stumpf’s reputation and job are in jeopardy in the ignominious aftermath of a $185 million settlement disclosed earlier in September by California and federal regulators over allegations, which followed Los Angeles Times reports dating to 2013, that thousands of Wells Fargo employees, driven by management sales quotas, opened a couple million new accounts for retail customers without their knowledge.
