As chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Smith takes very seriously his obligation to uphold and defend the Constitution.

It's a responsibility spelled out in the very oath of office he and all member of Congress give:

"I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

As a daily visual enforcer of this duty, Congressman Smith keeps in his office the signature of James Madison, primary author and most ardent champion of the Constitution.
