CEA Mourns House Speaker Foley
Thomas Foley, the Democratic Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in the early 1990s, passed away Friday the age of 84.
Foley was a longtime friend of the consumer electronics industry, and CEA president and CEO Gary Shapiro issued a statement mourning his passing.
“We mourn the death of Speaker Tom Foley. In addition to his great service on behalf of our nation, Speaker Foley was a fan and supporter of consumer technology. He was an audiophile who enjoyed the best of our industry’s high fidelity audio products," Shapiro said.
