"Let me get on to another life that is not Watergate-related," says E. Howard Hunt who, almost a year after completing his Watergate prison sentence, has remarried and resumed his career as a writer of thrillers.
"Watergate is over with. It's finished. Let's get on to new things." Hunt said in an interview at his Miami home, where he is working on his 5th adventures novel.
Three days before Christmas, Hunt married Laura Martin, 31, of Albony, Ga. a Spanish teacher whom his daughter befriended in Spain several years ago. Hunt's first wife, Dorothy, died in a 1972 plane crash, and he met Martin while he was in prison in northern Florida.
Since the end of his 32-months prison term last February, Hunt told the Miami Herald, he has visited his parole officer once a month to report "whether I've beer arrested during the month, that sort of thing." He had been given a 2 1/2-to 8-year prison sentence and a $10,000 fine for leading the burglars at the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate complex in Washington in 1972.
He had to give up skect shooting because he can't own guns. His right to votecan be restored only by a presidential pardon.
