Summary
  • This paper examines United States Representative Hale Boggs's 1971 speech on the House floor, in which he denounced J. Edgar Hoover and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for wiretapping members of Congress and infiltrating campus student groups. Following an introduction to the objectives of the paper, the first section reviews Boggs's academic and political career, giving some insight into his personality. The second part discusses the nature of Boggs's 1971 speech and the accuracy of the charges he leveled against Hoover and the FBI. The third part of the paper examines Boggs's motives for denouncing Hoover, speculating as to whether he personally had become a victim of the FBI surveillance that he had denounced and elaborating on Boggs's feelings toward Hoover. In the fourth part, the paper describes the reactions of the House and Senate and of Mr. Hoover to Boggs's allegations. The paper concludes that the object of Boggs's speech was to stir Congress to investigate the FBI in protection of the Bill of Rights, and that the brief but intense rhetoric of his speech was successful.
