Saxbe served as an Ohio state representative from 1947 to 1954. He was then elected Ohio attorney general, defeating Democrat Stephen M. Young, and held that office from 1963 to 1968. He was a member of the Ohio Crime Commission from 1967 to 1968. In 1968, Saxbe was elected to the U.S. Senate, defeating Democrat John J. Gilligan. He served in the Senate until 1974, when he was appointed U.S. attorney general. (There was some minor controversy regarding Saxbe's appointment, as it appeared that it violated a minor provision of the Constitution. That provision stated that a legislator could not be appointed to an executive position during the same term that the legislator and legislature had voted to increase the salary of said position. However, because there was no perception that anything intentional had been done to benefit Saxbe, the matter was widely ignored.) Gilligan, who had been elected Governor of Ohio in 1970, appointed Howard Metzenbaum to fill out Saxbe's term. Later that year, former astronaut John Glenn, another Democrat, was elected to replace Saxbe. Year 1947 (MCMXLVII) was a common year starting on Wednesday (the link is to a full 1947 calendar). ...
