HENRY J. HYDE
Card signed by the late 32-year Congressman who led the impeachment hearings against President Bill Clinton
Signature: "Henry J. Hyde/M.C., Illinois", 2x3½ card. Hyde, a member of Illinois' delegation in the House of Representatives from 1975 to 2007, was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1924. He was a member of the House Judiciary Committee from 1975 to 2001 and its chairman from 1995 until he left the committee. During that time, he became lead house manager in the impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton in 1998. Hyde maintained at the time that the House was constitutionally bound to impeach Clinton for perjury stemming from an investigation into Clinton's extramarital affairs; however, the online magazine Salon.com claimed that Hyde himself had an affair from 1965 to 1969. Hyde was played basketball for the Georgetown Hoyas, whom he led to the 1943 Final Four. He served in the Navy from 1944 to 1946, where he saw combat in the Philippines. He grew up a Democrat, but switched to Republican in 1952 to vote for Dwight Eisenhower. A Catholic and conservative, he opposed abortion liberalization and was a leader in passing a ban on "partial-birth abortions," the first law to oppose a specific abortion procedure. But he also broke step with his party on several occasions, joining the Clinton administration's opposition to the 1973 War Powers Resolution, which would have restricted Clinton's use of troops in Haiti, Somalia and Bosnia, and voting to ban some types of assault weapons. He received the Medal of Freedom, one of America's two highest civilian awards, in 2007 from President George W. Bush. Hyde died in 2007 after suffering complications from open heart surgery. Lightly toned and light scuff marks on top. Otherwise, fine condition.
