A former military prosecutor and civil lawyer, Segretti ran a campaign of political sabotage against the Democrats for Nixon's reelection effort. In 1974, he served 4 1/2 months in prison after pleading guilty to three misdemeanor counts of distributing illegal campaign literature, including a letter falsely claiming that former senator Henry M. "Scoop" Jackson had fathered an illegitimate child with a 17-year-old girl.

Segretti briefly threw his hat into the ring as a candidate for Superior Court judge in Orange County, Calif., in 1995 but withdrew after a week, saying the shadow of Watergate hung over the campaign. "It was supposed to be a low-key campaign and a non-partisan office," Segretti said. "But it wasn't treated that way."
