RIP George Smathers

Maybe he never actually said it, but it's a great story:

"Do you know that Claude Pepper is known all over Washington as a shameless extrovert?" Mr. Smathers was quoted as saying. "Not only that, but this man is reliably reported to practice nepotism with his sister-in-law and he has a sister who was once a thespian in wicked New York. Worst of all, it is an established fact that Mr. Pepper, before his marriage, habitually practiced celibacy."
