Jack Brooks hounded government bureaucrats, drafted President Nixon's articles of impeachment and supported civil rights bills in a congressional career spanning 42 years.

After a big win in Saturday's Kansas caucuses, Rick Santorum is riding high almost everywhere but in his native Pennsylvania.
"I never thought being a congressman was supposed to be an easy job, and it doesn't bother me a bit to be in a good fight," he once said.
"I guess you could say there's a disconnect between Rick Santorum's claim to be a small-government fiscal conservative and the Pittsburgh tunnel project he pushed for as a U.S. senator," said Jack Brooks, a former top official in a powerful Pennsylvania trade union that backed Mr. Santorum's failed Senate re-election bid in 2006.
