DescriptionJohn J. McFall, 88, a California Democrat who served 11 terms in the U.S. House of Representatives before seeing his political career unravel in a Korean influence-buying scandal, died March 7 at Inova Alexandria Hospital. He had Parkinson's disease and complications from a broken hip.

Starting in 1956, Rep. McFall represented the largely agricultural northern Central Valley, whose biggest city is Stockton. He began a low-key, steady career ascent, focusing on water policy issues and expressing support for the Vietnam War policies of Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon while serving on the powerful House defense appropriations subcommittee.
