Michael J. Myers

Biography:Michael J. Myers (born May 4, 1943) is a politician from the U.S. State of Pennsylvania.

Myers was elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives as a Democrat in 1970 and he served in that body until 1976. Myers was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976. Myers had previously been a longshoreman. He was regarded as a "maverick" from the very beginning. For example, in 1979 he got into a fistfight with a Washington DC waiter whom he felt wasn't showing proper respect for a member of Congress.

Myers is known most for being involved in the Abscam scandal in 1980. Myers was videotaped accepting a bribe of $50,000 from undercover FBI agents. Myers infamously stated on that tape "money talks and bullshit walks." Myers was expelled from the House of Representatives on October 2, 1980 by a vote of 376 to 30, becoming the first member of the House to be expelled since 1861; the next to suffer this fate was Jim Traficant in 2002. Myers was defeated by Thomas M. Foglietta in the 1980 election. Myers was sentenced to three years in prison in 1981. Enjoys hunting, fishing and the Poconos.
