<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Such tactics suggest that Issa is hardly a starched-collar Republican—and he has the rap sheet to prove it. As a young man, he was charged twice with auto theft (both times the charges were dropped) and convicted of misdemeanor gun possession (he paid a small fine and did three months' probation). After two stints in the Army, Issa's brushes with the law inspired him to launch Directed Electronics, which makes the Viper car alarm. (If you own one, that's Issa's voice saying, "Please step away from the car.")
That wealth came in handy in 2003 when Issa gained national prominence as the key money man behind the campaign to recall Democratic Governor Gray Davis. Though he has long tried to be heard on issues ranging from immigration to Middle East affairs, it's Issa's calls for greater transparency of the massive $787 billion economic stimulus package and ongoing bank bailouts that have finally made him a national force.
His investigations rarely turn up smoking guns, but that's not the point. Instead he ties up his targets for months with hostile questions and subpoenas. Strategic leaking is also part of the package. The panel's investigative reports and subpoenaed documents often hit the news shortly before a hearing. "You in the press are our greatest resource," says Issa.
