Notes


  1. Father Gabriel Richard was briefly 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 re-election as a result of the issuance of these guidelines.
