Notes and references

  1. Note: Father Gabriel Richard briefly was in the U.S. Congress in the 1820s, but as a territorial representative. Under guidelines released by Pope John Paul II, Catholic clergy are expected not to serve in positions of civil authority. Drinan did not seek reelection as a result of the issuance of these guidelines.
