#3 the man was personally courageous and did not allow corruption in his office

however, over his lifetime, he sponsored billions and billions of dollars of earmarks, many were so awful as to be the subject of local joking; even as late as 2010 when almost everyone realized that the earmarks in the stimulus bill were mostly useless, and in some cases counterproductive, he still was a fully bore pro earmark guy (took over the Senate Appro committee when Bryd died)
