Rep. John Lewis Named One of Nine Pillars of Congress By Esquire Magazine
In the November issue of Esquire magazine, Congressman John Lewis is named one of the "9 Pillars of Congress". The magazine describes the honor in this way: "The good works and great sacrifice of our elected officials too often go unsung. If you're looking for real thought leadership, here are some of our very best." The magazine goes on to describe Rep. Lewis as "a beacon of probity in the House." The Congressman was one of three members of the House of Representatives given this honor; the rest were senators. And he was the only minority member of Congress included in this group.
