During the Nixon administration, lists were drawn up with names of people thought to be liberal and anti-Nixon; the list was orighinally to be 20 names-— politicans and entertainers, but eventually grew to be well over 700 names, on two lists. The Nixon administration wanted the Internel Revenue Service to audit their tax data and harass them; the I.R.S. refused to do so and made the scandal public. None of the Nixon people were charged with crimes, although some could have been. This scandal pre-dated Watergate and Watergate involved many of the same top Nixon appointees.
This book includes a major summary of the Watergate scandal and the names of those Nixon appointees who were convictied of crimes involving Watergate.
