ARMPAC recipient

In October 2005, Johnson came under pressure when it was found that he had recieved $25,000 from ARMPAC, Tom DeLay's political action committee.[1]

Paperclip voting

The October 2000 issue of Illinois Issues reported that, in 1980, as a Representative in the Illinois House, Johnson lodged a paperclip into his voting button so that he could vote along party lines while out of the chamber.

Term-limit pledge

Johnson pledged to serve no more than three terms in Congress during his initial campaign in 2000. He broke the pledge, however, when he opted to seek a fourth term in 2006. [2]
