E Howard Hunt Dies

E. Howard Hunt, who helped organize the Watergate break-in, had died. He was 88.
"I will always be called a Watergate burglar, even though I was never in the damn place."But it happened. Now I have to make the best of it." -- Hunt, in an interview with the Miami Herald in 1997
Mr Hunt was convinced that Cuba's Castro regime was making large contributions to the George McGovern Presidential campaign. He believed if stealing accounting records would prove it.

The idea was wrong, and the Watergate burglars were caught -- leading to the collapse of the Nixon administration. (ABC)
