Gerald Edward Sikorski (born April 26, 1948) is a Minnesota politician and lawyer. He was the U.S. Representative for Minnesota's 6th congressional district as a DFL member from January 3, 1983, to January 3, 1993, in the 98th, 99th, 100th, 101st, and 102nd Congresses, serving as Whip-at-Large and as a member of the Committees on Energy and Commerce and Post Office and Civil Service. Sikorski was defeated by Rod Grams in 1992 after he was revealed to have had 697 overdrafts on the House Bank, which he attributed to his and his wife's sloppy bookkeeping.

Sikorski graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree, summa cum laude from the University of Minnesota in 1970 and a Juris Doctor from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1973; he was admitted to the Minnesota bar in 1973 and commenced practice in Stillwater. He served in the Minnesota Senate from 1976 to 1982.[1] After his departure from Congress, Sikorski became a Washington attorney and lobbyist. He is Polish American.[2]
