He is famous for his vote on the floor of the Nitijela (Marshallese Congress) where he once voted positively "in the name of Miller Lite". His fishing skills are frequently lauded, as he managed to sink a brand new 30 foot sport fishing boat while still moored to the dock. He publicly stood and cheered when the twin towers came down on 9/11.
