U.S. Congressman
    (November 3, 1930-November 8, 2014)
    Republican Congressman from Illinois (1969-2005)
    Chairman of the American Conservative Union (1977-1979)
    He was one of the most conservative members of Congress, having a 99% lifetime score from the American Conservative Union.
    He unsuccessfully ran for President in 1980 as being farther right than Ronald Reagan.
    After a bout of pneumonia, he quit smoking, but then turned his already heavy drinking into full-blown alcoholism to compensate for lack of cigarettes. (1998)
    It was reported that he would frequently down ten Heinekens in a night.
    He was criticized for his lack of communication with constituents by challenger Melissa Bean.
    He was one of the few Republicans to lose his seat in the 2004 election.
    He was an intellectual who had a PhD in history.
    He was elected in a special election to succeed none other than Donald Rumsfeld (November 1969).
    He was a man conservatives could always rely on in Congress.
    His 31-year old daughter died of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, increasing his alcohol dependency (December 26, 1997).
    After over thirty years of service, he was passed over for the Chairmanship of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee in favor of Rep. Bill Thomas, who had less seniority than he did. (2000)
    He successfully recovered from his alcoholism, which he views to be a habit, rather than an addiction or disease.
