Rep. George Hansen (1930–2014)

Former Idaho Congressman George Hansen died August 14, 2014, in Pocatello. He served seven terms in the U.S. House of Representatives from Idaho's 2nd Congressional District (1965-1969 and 1975-1985). During his time in office, he was known as one of the most conservative members of the House and a fierce critic of the IRS.

In 1984 Hansen was convicted in federal court for filing false congressional financial disclosure forms and was subsequently reprimanded by the House under the Ethics in Government Act. He lost his seat in the November election to Democrat Richard Stallings by just 170 votes. Early in 1984, Hansen sat down with Idaho Reports host Marc Johnson to discuss the ongoing ethics investigation.
