Robert Louis Leggett (July 26, 1926 – August 13, 1997) was a U.S. Representative from California.

Early life

Born in Richmond, California, Leggett attended the public schools there. He served as an enlisted man in the United States Naval Air Corps from 1944 to 1946.

He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a B.A. in 1947, and the University of California's Boalt Hall School of Jurisprudence with a J.D. in 1950. He was admitted to the bar in 1951 and began the practice of law in Vallejo, California. He served as member of the California State Assembly in 1960 and 1962.

Congressional career

Leggett was elected as a Democrat to the Eighty-eighth and to the seven succeeding Congresses, serving from January 3, 1963 to January 3, 1979. He served on the House Armed Services Committee and opposed the Vietnam War. He also was an early environmentalist.[1]

In the 1970s, he began an affair with Suzi Park Thomson, an aide to Speaker of the House Carl Albert.[1] Thomson, who was born in Korea, frequently entertained diplomats and intelligence officials from the South Korean Embassy. In 1976, as part of investigations related to Koreagate, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Internal Revenue Service contended that Leggett may have passed information to Korean officials or received favors from them.[2] Leggett strongly denied the accusations and retired from Congress in 1979.[2] He and Thomson married in 1981.[1]

Leggett died August 13, 1997, in Orange, California, aged 71.
