The President's Men

Recommended Posts

How about a president's woman?
 

Anna Chennault, a Chinese-born writer and business executive who married a storied American general and became a Washington hostess, Republican Party activist and secret emissary for candidate Richard Nixon during the 1968 presidential campaign, died March 30 at her home in Washington. She was 94.  She had complications from a recent stroke.

Chennault gained international fame in 1947, when she married a swashbuckling World War II hero, Maj. Gen. Claire L. Chennault, in Shanghai. At the beginning of the war, he organized the Flying Tigers, a volunteer group of American airmen in China, then a U.S. ally.  He was three decades her senior.

Edward Nixon, the youngest and last surviving of Richard Nixon's brothers, dead at 88.

Co-chair of CREEP, I understand.

 

Was he ever indicted?

No he was not indicted and I don’t believe he was ever implicated in any particular wrong doing in regard to Watergate. 

 

Point of interest, with the exception of Jean Kennedy Smith, there are now no living presidential siblings until George H. W. Bush’s.

Our esteemed poster, AngryGreatness gave me the idea for this topic, when he posted about the death of Julian Goodman, who was on the list, in the Watergate Figures thread.

 

I decided to start a whole new thread for Dick's enemies. There were a few, maybe 10, for which I couldn't find birthdates, but they probably weren't/aren't very notable, so I decided not to include them.

Pick for me in the DDP a year or two ago James W McCord, Watergate Burglar, died waaaay back in 2017: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=12223765

 

Nice of them to tell us now....


And now Eugenio Martínez (wiki) has died aged 98.

Means that Virgilio Gonzalez (wiki) is the last survivor of the 5 Watergate burglars. He turns 95 in May.

Good spot. I did suspect that he may have died off radar but the fact that ABC News interviewed him in 2012 was enough to think “alright the MSM must have contacts for him on file, they’d know”.

 

Just 2 of the 14 indicted still living then:

Yeah, after McCord I'm actually more surprised by Martinez's death being revealed two days after it happened than by Gonzalez dying off radar.

Possibly 3 as there still isn’t an adequate citation for the death of Kenneth Parkinson, the only one acquitted. Wikipedia has him dying in October of 2016 but I’ve been looking for confirmation since then and have found nothing.

Virgilio is actually a pretty common name in a lot of Spanish speaking countries and that carried over to a Latino's in the Us ,so I could see how his death flew under the radar the same way a notable Bob Smith or Roger Taylor if they were out of the spotlight for decades.

A very significant death indeed . Would be surprised not to see a lot of obits including on tv.  This  pretty much  means all living participants in the Watergate Affair  are now dead I suppose.

 

 Sure enough the obits are flooding in ! https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHBF_en-GBGB854GB854&sxsrf=ALeKk03vv5a5f-cVnLCNhqKxlAtYYRPQWA:1617154577969&q=G.+Gordon+Liddy&tbm=nws&source=univ&tbo=u&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi8lqqhstnvAhXW8LsIHfmxAYcQt8YBKAJ6BAgFEAM&biw=1260&bih=631
