    Liz Holtzman. In the 80’s or 90’s she had a complete makeover, different hairstyle etc., she rebranded her image before running for higher office (& lost) but in the 70’s that’s how she looked.

    Rishe, I looked at the picture and before I looked down at the comments I thought it looks like Elizabeth Holtzman.. Insee that others agree with me also.
