Kokomo Tribune (Newspaper) - December 18, 1986, Kokomo, Indiana State world 20 Kokomo Tribune Thursday Dec 18 1986 Hoosier will lead House Iran probe By Thomas Grose Thomson Washington Bureau WASHINGTON House Speakerelect James Wright Wednesday named Rep Lee Hamilton to lead a special 15 member panel to investigate the IranContra arms sales imbroglio Ill do the best I can with the Indiana Democrat said Speculation had centered on Hamilton noted for his quiet in telligence and expertise on Middle Eastern affairs since it was an nounced that a socalled super committee would be formed to probe the arms crisis The selection is expected to thrust the softspoken 55yearold lawmaker into the national limelight after 22 years of relative obscurity Hamilton though shrugged off the celebrity aspects of the ap pointment saying that the press and publics attention may be diverted to new issues as the panel does its work But however low his public pro file may be Hamilton is viewed with much respect by his col leagues and is considered an in fluential member He is the rank ing majority member on the Foreign Affairs Committee and is just completing a term as chair man of the Select Intelligence Committee The most recent edition of Pol itics in America describes Hamilton as an adroit earnest lawmaker who chooses issues carefully and makes few wasted moves Hamilton has a reservoir of respect few members can match But he has been reluctant to take advantage of it and he has never sought a brokers role in House And according to Hamilton he didnt lobby for this job either I didnt talk to anyone trying to get it I certainly didnt seek he said In a story last week speculating on who would chair the House and Senate special committees the New York Times said some Dem ocrats felt Hamiltons chances were hampered some by his laid back style that he wasnt ag gressive enough But Nick Cullather a former Hamilton press secretary said Lee Hamilton that criticism was off the mark Hamilton Cullather said is a trained lawyer who was known for his aggressiveness a few years ago when he was a key member of the House Ethics Committee a point also made by Politics in which called him the dominant Democrat on that panel It was Hamilton who was in strumental in forcing the resigna tion of former Ohio Congressman Wayne Hays a onetime House power broker who became ensnarled in a sex scandal Cullather said Hamiltons appointment won applause from both sides of the aisle House Minority Leader Robert Michel said he was con vinced that Lee is a good and noted that Hamilton has worked well and closely with the senior Republican named to the panel Rep Dick Cheney of Wyoming Added Rep Michael DeWine ROhio also named to the committee I think hell be a good chairman Hes a real level headed guy and hes respected on both sides of the The committee will not be of ficially created until the first week of January However Hamilton said a lot of work can be done State update
