Chapter on Watergate from George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography by Webster G. Tarpley & Anton Chaitkin | July 11, 2007

In November, 1972, Bush’s “most influential patron,” Richard Nixon [fn 1], won re-election to the White House for a second term in a landslide victory over the McGovern-Shriver Democratic ticket. Nixon’s election victory had proceeded in spite of the arrest of five White House-linked burglars in the offices of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate building in Washington early on June 17 of the same year. This was the beginning of the infamous Watergate scandal, which would overshadow and ultimately terminate Nixon’s second term in 1974.
