Robert Mooneyhan "Robin" Tallon, Jr. (born August 8, 1946) is an American attorney, businessman, and politicians who served as a United States Representative from South Carolina. He is a member of the Democratic Party.
Tallon was the owner of a chain of retail clothing stores in the Carolinas and Georgia and real estate broker and developer before entering politics. He was a delegate of the White House Conference on Small Business in 1980.
Tallon was a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1980 to 1982. He was elected as a Democrat to the 98th United States Congress and to the four succeeding Congresses, serving from January 3, 1983 to January 3, 1993. He was a member of the Agricultural Committee, the Merchant Marine & Fisheries Committee and was Chairman of the Tourism Caucus.
After South Carolina's 6th congressional district was redrawn by the legislature following the 1990 census and became a majority-minority district, Tallon opted not to run in 1992 for renomination as a candidate to the 103rd United States Congress.
He is a principal in the government affairs and public relations firm, Jenkins Hill Consulting, in Washington, D.C., and serves on the Board of Trustees of the Medical University of South Carolina. Tallon is a member of the ReFormers Caucus of Issue One.
