Bella Abzug -- On Running for Congress

Bella AbzugLynn GilbertComment

"I never expected to run for Congress. It was not part of my game plan or anything like that. My decision came from years of frustration and disappointment and will, I guess. Finally one of the politicians I had helped to elect said to me, “Well, you always criticize. Why don’t you do it yourself?” I said, “You know, you’ve got a point there. I think I’ll do it."
