1930: G. Gordon Liddy, the chief operative for President Richard Nixon's White House Plumbers unit when they broke into the Watergate complex, is born in Brooklyn, New York. Liddy, who served two years stateside in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and also worked for the FBI and as a lawyer before working for the Nixon administration, was convicted of burglary, conspiracy and refusing to testify to the Senate committee investigating Watergate and served nearly 52 months in prison. He went on to become an author, a public speaker and a conservative radio talk show host.
