RIP William Proxmire; Upstanding Public Servant

Sen. William Proxmire, WI, died this morning at the age of 90.

Proxmire was a tireless fighter against wasteful government spending. Through his "Golden Fleece Awards," he alone did more than any other group of politicians to curtail waste, fraud and abuse in the expenditure of the public purse.

Proxmire's example should be a model for our current representatives of both parties at all levels of government.
