Otis G. Pike was a longtime New York Congressman who served as a Democrat in the House of Representatives for over eighteen years. He was known for leading an inquiry of abuse of power against the CIA throughout the 1970s. His inquiry was considered successful and led to a fairer balance of power and more Congressional oversight over the CIA.
