|G. Gordon Liddy
The former FBI agent orchestrated the Watergate break-in with E. Howard Hunt. Liddy was a member of the White House "plumbers," and served as general counsel for the Committee for the Re-election of the President. He was convicted for his role in the burglary, for conspiracy in the break-in at the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist and for contempt of court. He spent four-and-a-half years in prison.
Liddy capitalized on his Watergate notoriety, penning a 1980 best-selling autobiography, "Will." He currently hosts a popular syndicated conservative radio program, "The G. Gordon Liddy Show," which he has used as a platform to denounce other Watergate figures' accounts of the scandal. Liddy also wrote two novels, "The Monkey Handlers" and "Out of Control," and acted in movies and television programs.
