The Packwood ReportBook - 1995
You've read the news reports, you've heard the stories -- now read the official indictment of Senator Robert Packwood issued on September 7, 1995, by the Senate Ethics Counsel. This is the report that forced the Senator to announce his resignation. This is the report that stunned the Congress and the country: a shocking look at the corruption and misconduct of an American Senator, including his own revealing diaries. No political scandal in recent times has so mesmerized the nation as the downfall of Oregon Senator Bob Packwood, who is only the fifth Senator in more than two hundred years of congressional history to relinquish his seat to avoid expulsion. Drawing liberally from Packwood's own diaries, and upon the testimonies and depositions contained in the Ethics Committee's recently released ten volumes totaling more than 10,000 pages, The Packwood Report is an astonishing document. It is essential reading for anyone who cares about politics, power, and corruption in government today.
