    (November 21, 1939-January 22, 1987)
    Treasurer of Pennsylvania
    Committed public suicide by gun (January 22, 1987)
    Computer Technology offered Dwyer $300,000 in campaign funds (1984)
    Dwyer awarded Computer Technology a $4.7 million contract concerning Overpayed Social Security Recovery without inviting other bids
    Dwyer was charged with 5 counts of mail fraud, 4 counts in aiding interstate racketeering and a count of conspiracy to commit bribery
    Inspired the song 'Hey Man, Nice Shot' by Filter
    He committed suicide of T.V. at a press conference he called (January 22, 1987).
    He was likely guilty of accepting a $300,000 bribe.
    Up until he committed suicide, he proclaimed his innocence: 'I face a maximum sentence of 55 years in prison and a $300,000 fine for being innocent.'
    Judge Muir has already told the press that he ''felt invigorated' when we were found guilty, and that he plans to imprison me as a deterrent to other public officials.
    But it wouldn't be a deterrent because every public official who knows me knows that I am innocent, it wouldn't be a legitimate punishment because I've done nothing wrong.
    Since I'm a victim of political persecution, my prison would simply be an American Gulag.'
    He committed suicide in a controlled way that did not physically injure others.
    He made sure to sign his organ donor card and have it present at his suicide (unfortunately only his corneas were usable).
