Roll Call notes that as hard as some publishers try, most former members of Congress aren’t interested in writing salacious memoirs.
Said former Rep. Lee Hamilton (D-IN): “I was approached, as I guess other Members are when they’re retired, by various agents and others who wanted me to write a book about the Congress. What they really wanted was a tell-all about the nefarious activities of Members of Congress. And that really kind of turned me off. I was not interested in that at all.”
Instead, Hamilton took a much more academic approach and authored, How Congress Works and Why You Should Care.Save to Favorites
