Yeah, That's him.
He was the house minority leader at the time.
I'm not actually sure he was the target, though (the admission by a mob criminal who could be lying is that the plane was bombed).
The Alaska congressman could have been the target.
They discovered oil four years earlier. My speculation is the Alaska representative wouldn't play ball and was punished for it.
His widow married a mob guy (same one who a lot of this is about) 16 months after the plane crash.
