 Claude Pepper   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
When so many patriotic members of the Congress resigned their seats to enter the armed forces, Pepper remained securely behind his desi in the Senate chamber.
History will remember him as the man who bankrupted the country trying to resurrect the discredited schemes of the New Deal, pretending that they ever worked, and denying the truth that the Roosevelt Depression was ended by the outbreak of World War II instead of social welfare giveaways.
Promote Pepper's career if you must, but please don't do it in company with the memories of those who fought for the defense of this nation and who desperately need the equipment and funds he denies them to defend it.
