Anybody know this?

I was reading a blogpost today that said that only four US Presidents have served in a federal office after leaving the Presidency. I'm confused. Is the guy counting John Tyler?

John Quincy Adams served in the US House of Representatives after his Presidency. Andrew Johnson was elected to the US Senate after his Presidency. William Howard Taft was Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court after his Presidency. But those are the only post-presidential federal tenures among US Presidents I can think of.

Tyler served in the Confederate Congress after his Presidency. Can this be what the guy was referring to, or am I missing somebody?
