Senior Senator for South Carolina
. Ernest, or 'Fritz' Hollings served as the governor of South Carolina, elected in 1958. He's been in the Senate a long time (first elected in 1966!), but due to Southern Inertia
, he was South Carolina's junior senator for 46 years, until Strom Thurmond
retired in 2002.
His most recent folly is his sponsorship of the CBDTPA, a bill aimed at imposing copyright protections on PCs. Another evil brought to you by the Disney Corporation.
Hollings also tacked his name to the "Gramm-Rudman-Hollings" Act which was meant to balance the budget in the 1980s. Didn't really work out.
