Brock Adams Life

Brockman "Brock" Adams (January 13, 1927 – September 10, 2004) was an American politician and member of Congress.

Adams was a Democrat from Washington and served as a U.S. Representative, Senator, and United States Secretary of Transportation before retiring in January 1993.

Early life and education

Adams was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and attended public schools in Portland, Oregon. He attended the University of Washington at Seattle where, in 1948, he was elected president of the student government (ASUW) and was the first student to both serve in that post and receive the President's Medal of Excellence as the University's top scholar. In 1949, Mary Maxwell served as secretary to ASUW president Adams. Later that year, Adams introduced Maxwell to his friend and her future husband, William Henry Gates II. He graduated in 1949 and was admitted to Harvard Law School, where he earned his law degree in 1952.

Adams served in the U.S. Navy from 1944 to 1946, and was admitted to the Washington state bar in 1952, opening a private practice in Seattle. He was a member of the American Bar Association.

Adams taught law at the American Institute of Banking from 1954 to 1960, and served as United States Attorney for the Western District of Washington from 1961 to 1964.


Brock Adams Career

Political career

Adams was elected as a Democrat to the House of Representatives and served six terms from January 3, 1965. During the 94th Congress, he was Chairman of the newly established Budget Committee, and he was considered a leading candidate for Speaker of the House of Representatives. Following his appointment by President Jimmy Carter and confirmation by the Senate, Adams resigned as the fifth Secretary of Transportation on January 22, 1977. Adams resumed law practice in Washington, D.C., where he was a lobbyist for CSX Corporation and other railroad carriers.

Adams was elected to the Senate on November 4, 1986, barely defeating incumbent Republican Slade Gorton with 50.6 percent of the vote. He had a liberal track record and was largely in favour of his party's leadership while serving a term.

In 1987, Kari Tupper, the niece of a long-time friend, accused Adams of opioid use and assaulting her.

Eight women testified to The Seattle Times in 1992, alleging that Adams had committed various acts of sexual assault, molestation, and rape. Multiple people were drugged after being served suspicious drinks and then assaulted or assaulted.

"Adams had long been known by his employees and associates for aggressively kissing and treating women within his area," an unidentified source told the story.

In the early 1970s, a former Democratic Party activist argued that when Adams was in the House of Representatives, he treated her to a Seattle bar, where he injected her with "Vitamin C" after she recalled suffering from a cold. Adams allegedly followed her home, coerced her to a couch, and assaulted her, according to the woman.

While she was seated at Adams' right at a formal luncheon shortly after she had started a new job on Capitol Hill, a young woman in her thirties told The Washingtonian that her hand slid his hand under her skirt to the upper part of her thigh, whereupon she proceeded to pull her leg away from him. She said she attempted to take his hand, but Adams prodded his fingers into her skin.

In a press conference, Adams denied the charges. But, Adams was forced to drop out of his reelection bid after being widely reported that he drugged and molested a young female aide in 1987, a little publicized issue in which no charges were made. He never lost an election and lived in Stevensville, Maryland, until his death from Parkinson's disease.
