Where do most of the former members of Congress go after leaving office? This book is a chronicle of where former members are living, what they are doing, how they happened to leave Congress-voluntarily or not-and what they see for themselves in the future. Rebecca Borders and C. C. Dockery examine a focus group consisting of 350 former members of the United States House of Representatives and United States Senate who left office from 1984 through 1993. They provide a look into the lives of the former members without regard to party or ideology. It is an attempt to answer some of the personal, historical, and ethical questions that arise when a member of Congress leaves office. They also present in-depth interviews with several former members including Dick Cheney, Lindy Boggs, Roy Dyson, and William Proximire. Also included is a directory of their current activities.
