Somehow this got by me, and I consider myself fairly well-informed. But this fell into the cracks of history until a friend sent me a note about this guy. He has a Wikipedia page. He was elected, twice, to the House of Representatives from Iowa in the mid ’70s where he sat on the House Judiciary Committee during Nixon’s impeachment trials. He voted to impeach Nixon.
Afterwards he served as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights.
He also worked as an investment broker and built up quite a practice using his contacts from his time in Washington to create his client list. At one point he was managing $10 million of other peoples’ money.
But then things went south.
