I find that offensive. 1 think Congress should have to live under every rule citizens of the United States do." Congresswoman Lynn Martin is also Lynn Leinenweber�wife, mother and homemaker. Early in 1987 Lynn married Federal District Court Judge Harry Leinenweber, combining two families and three homes. She main tains an apartment in Washington, another in Chicago and a home in Loves Park, III., all without housekeeping help. She spends each weekend in Illi nois, often doing housework. Of her homemaking role, the highest ranking woman in the U.S. House of Representatives said, "Maybe this is a rationalization, but I think it's good for me. If you read something in the paper that says you're important or wonderful, it brings you back down to earth to scrub the tub. And just maybe it makes you a better representative. You're on your hands and knees instead of in the clouds." Clearly Lynn Morley Marfin Leinenweber has not been one to set limits on her accomplishments or be awed by challenges. She entered college, state politics, the U.S. Congress and a new marriage confident of her abil ity to succeed. "I have realized that even if your life is full, it can be fuller." Susan Latham and Barbara Globensky visit Lynn Martin in her office.
