Buckley T. Ratchford vs. Stephen Colbert (Video)

By Melissa Bell

It doesn't seem as if it would be hard to book a guest on Stephen Colbert's show, but last night Colbert took to a new way of encouraging a guest to come on the show: blackmail. One of Colbert's staffers found a credit card of one Buckley T. Ratchford. A quick Google search shows Ratchford is a partner at Goldman Sachs. He also married last March, according to the New York Times wedding announcements. Colbert has a simple proposition for Ratchford: Come on his show and talk about Wall Street bonuses or Colbert will give away his credit card information. Ratchford could easily cancel his credit card and ignore Colbert's demands, but where would the fun be in that?
