Lester Tuck in Atlas Shrugged

By Ayn Rand

Lester Tuck

Even though he is Kip Chalmer's campaign manager, Lester doesn't have much influence over Kip. He is sort of a pathetic, beaten-down older guy who couldn't get a job doing anything else. He just sort of shrugs when Kip starts ranting and does little to help defuse the situation at all.
