QUOTATION:I take the view that equality is equality … and that I am a member of Congress as good as anybody else. As long as it is within the law, it’s not wrong…. If the law is wrong, change the law.

  I do not do any more than any other member of the Congress, but by the Grace of God, I’ll not do less!
