U.S. Senator
    (September 11, 1924-April 6, 2018)
    Born in Honolulu, Hawaii
    Former high school teacher and principal
    US Representative (1977-90) and Senator (1990-2013) from Hawaii
    His last name sounds like caca.
    He votes in lockstep with the Democrats over 95% of the time.
    He was rated as a 'big spender' by the National Taxpayers Union.
    He was named one of the five worst Senators by 'Time' (2006), which called him 'a master of the minor resolution and the bill that dies in committee.'
    He served with the Army Corps of Engineers in World War II.
    He has been married to Millie Chong for over 60 years.
    He was the first Native Hawaiian to serve in the US Senate. (Previous Senators from Hawaii had been ethnically either white or Asian.)
    He was named an honorary citizen of the Philippines for his role in securing benefits for Filipinos who served with the US armed forces during WWII.
    He claimed his low profile in the Senate is a result of modesty: 'I was taught not to be a show horse but a work horse.'
