Harrison A. Jr. Williams

Biography

American politician who was implicated in the Abscam sting. The two-year operation set up an FBI agent as an Arab millionaire who offered bribes for favors. When the story broke on 2/02/1980, a number of government figures were indicted, including Williams. Abscam made the accusation that Williams agreed to seek government contracts for a titanium mine in exchange for a $100 million loan. Though he declared his innocence, Williams resigned.

One of the Democratic Party's most promising newcomers in the '50s, Williams had come out of WW II as a Navy pilot into Columbia's Law School and then into private practice. He became a New Jersey Senator, a Democrat. He had two marriages; five kids.

In 1970, Williams had a setback when his drinking problem got out of hand and became a public issue; he swears he has been dry since then.
