Former Aide to Senator Daniel Inouye Recalls Memorable Moments With Passionate Senator

posted by Randall

Daniel InouyeA civil rights attorney who once worked as an Aide to Senator Daniel Inouye and was one of the first women lawyers on his staff remembers his commitment to reparation for Japanese Americans.  They worked together decades ago during his long career in the Senate, but Inouye still sent her a commemorative coin to mark his rise to the third in the succession line to be President. Carolyn Classen recalled  in the Tucson Citizen a humorous moment during the Watergate hearings.

Classen wrote “I remember him telling us staffers about the comment he muttered about counsel John Ehrlichman (one of President Nixon’s aides) — “What a liar” is what the press heard, but Inouye maintained he said “What a lawyer.”
