G. Gordon Liddy, who resembled a Warner Brothers cartoon villain in real life, and was the mastermind of a cartoonish burglary that brought down a real villain —Tricky Dick— has gone to his great reward, which no doubt involves serving Nixon again:
G. Gordon Liddy, a mastermind of the Watergate burglary and a radio talk show host after emerging from prison, died Tuesday at age 90 at his daughter’s home in Virginia. …
Liddy, a former FBI agent and Army veteran, was convicted of conspiracy, burglary and illegal wiretapping for his role in the Watergate burglary, which led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. He spent four years and four months in prison, including more than 100 days in solitary confinement.
