U.S. Congressman
    (February 1, 1928-February 11, 2008)
    Born in Budapest, Hungary
    Birth name was Lantos Tamas Peter
    Represented California's 12th district (1981-February 11, 2008)
    He called German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder a 'politcal prostitute' over German opposition to the war in Iraq.
    When war opponents asked what would happen if the Iraqis did not welcome US forces, he said it was a kind of racism to suggest that the Iraqis might be so ungrateful.
    During an investigation into improper access to FBI files, he told White House staffer Craig Livingston, 'With an infinitely more distinguished record than yours, Admiral Boorda committed suicide when he committed a minor mistake,' which many criticized as apparent encouragement for Livingston to kill himself too (2006).
    He was fined for inattentive driving after running over a thirteen-year-old boy's foot and failing to stop.
    He was sent to a Nazi labor camp when he was 16.
    He is the first (and as of 2007 only) Holocaust survivor to serve in the US Congress.
    He sponsored the bill to grant honorary American citizenship to Raoul Wallenberg.
    He was arrested outside the Sudanese embassy while protesting the genocide in Darfur (April 28, 2006).
    He criticized the Bush administration's 'stunning incompetence' in rebuilding Iraq.
