Hefley was born April 18, 1935 in Ardmore, Oklahoma. He was educated at the Oklahoma State University and was a management consultant, executive director of the Colorado Community Planning and Research Council, executive director of the Pikes Peak Health Planning, and a member of the Colorado House of Representatives and the Colorado Senate before entering the House.
He served as chairman of the House Ethics Committee until 2005; he had angered Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert by repeatedly admonishing Majority Leader Tom DeLay, fueling allegations of corruption that had already damaged DeLay (adding insult to injury, the admonishing letters came during the heat of a contested election). http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A58884-2005Feb2.html Read More...
