Most surprisingly given the character he played, Ben has had a very active political career since The Dukes of Hazzard. He served as a congressman for Georgia from 1989 to 1993. He is a well known writer of political essays and even penned a play. He wrote a book entitled "Red Neck Boy in the Promised Land". He now owns a store/museum that sells Dukes of Hazzard memorabilia called "Cooter's Place".
