Gus Savage

I missed this story over the weekend. Former US Congressman (from Chicago) Gus Savage died over the weekend. He was 90 years old. I covered Gus during my radio days, and he was always good for a controversial quote. His career ended because of a scandal (he had several of those), but he was ironically beaten by Mel Reynolds...who himself had to leave office because of a scandal. (My Kind of Town, Chicago is)

This is the only clip I could find of Gus on Youtube. I don't think it will take you too long to see exactly why he was considered so controversial...
