  • QUOTABLE: "Oh, I learned that there are sons-of-bitches in the legislature! As there are in any business! Actually I don't like to see the legislature discredited because I don't believe they deserve it. The majority of people serving up there are principled people. There's some bastards and sons-of-bitches, of course, but they are very much in the minority." (From his Oral Histories interview with Carlos Vasquez)
  • QUOTABLE: "Individuals don't change very much whether they are in or out [of office]. If they're ethical, they remain ethical. If they're not, it carries on into the legislature." (From his Oral Histories interview with Carlos Vasquez)
