Charles H. Keating Jr. has long been a visible proxy for the savings and loan scandal, but to many analysts the defiant owner of Lincoln Savings & Loan Assn. has also become the symbol of a burgeoning crisis in election financing in America. During five weeks of hearings by the Senate Ethics Committee, the Keating affair has proved to be an allegory that has dramatized the shortcomings of the current campaign finance system.

To my mind, the trouble with Sen. Daniel Inouye's (D-Hawaii) statement as quoted in The Times (Dec. 4) that the "Keating Five are guilty only of fighting for a constituent with 'vigor and aggressiveness' " fails to recognize that senators are elected to represent all their constituents, not a constituent. I would hope that my elected representatives are looking at all of the facts of any issue and then making decisions which are in the best interests of all. Then I, too, would never find any official wanting in honesty and integrity.
