Bob Packwood, the brainy, highly respected chairman of the Senate Finance Committee in the 1980s, was also not targeted just for sex but presumably for other violations that emerged along with the sexual harassment case against him. Pack-wood's experience also highlighted the hypocrisy involved in the ethics process on sexual issues. It showed the deficiencies in the process and the inequity in applying standards. But it also showed that the legislature remains a glass house and that a higher standard of behavior is expected of lawmakers than ordinary citizens expect of themselves. Packwood's troubles began in November 1992, immediately after his election to a fifth six-year term in the Senate. Allegations of sexual harassment against him had surfaced in Oregon, where a reporter for the Oregonian was working on a story based on accusations from former aides of the senator.
