Succession of office[edit]

The right summary table lists his successor in Congress as William Royer. Yet body text lists his successor as Tom Lantos. I suspect the difference is due to changes in the district boundaries and thus both may be true; yet to a casual reader the article seems internally inconsistent. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.210.20.54 (talk) 07:32, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

Ryan is the only U.S. Member of Congress killed in the line of duty.[edit]

This line is directly contradicted by this article - the sources (all media sources) all seem to be parroting off each other. Zambelo; talk 09:57, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
