Angus King has been in Maine politics for as long as I can remember. He was the Maine state Governor from 1995 until 2003. Personally, I'll always think of him as the guy who made it so I got a laptop in 7th grade. That was pretty sweet.

Now he's serving as Maine's first Independent United States Senator.

One Redditor noticed that Senator King shared a strong resemblance with a Family Guy character, Carter Pewterschmidt. Carter is Lois' father and while he and our Senator may look alike, they are quite different.

According to the Family Guy Wiki, Carter is a jerk, particularly towards his son-in-law, Peter. In one episode titled "Peterotica", Peter went to his father in law for a loan to open his own business writing erotic novels and Carter put $5 in the bottom of a jar filled with salt and barbed wire. Now I've never met Senator King personally, but I'd like to think he'd spot me $5.

So, do you see the resemblance?
