The longest serving member of Congress, currently John Dingell has held his seat for the past 57 years. A new Gallup poll out last week says that 71% of us favor Congressional term limits.

Last week, after seeking a 6th term, Congressman Frank Lautenberg died last week, still holding his Congressional seat.
