The former Saturday Night Live star now becomes one of a number of former television actors turned (short term, low impact) members of the US Congress, including two term (4 years) Representative from Georgia Ben Jones, who played "Cooter" on The Dukes of Hazard, four term (8 years) Representative from Iowa Fred Grandy, who played "Gopher" on the Love Boat, and one and a third term (8 years) Senator from Tennessee Fred Thompson ("Law & Order").
