ND Insurance Commissioner Wants to Take World’s Tallest Politician Title From NYC Councilman

BISMARCK, N.D. – After a New York City Councilman is named the Guinness World Record Holder for tallest politician, North Dakota’s Insurance Commissioner says the distinction won’t stand for long.

Robert Cornegy Jr. earned the world record for being 6’10” tall.

Godfread played basketball for Northern Iowa. The program for his senior year in 2005 lists the Grand Forks native at 6’10” inches tall.

In a tweet, Godfread says he’s confirmed as the tallest member of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. He adds, “Next stop, Guinness World Record.”
