Watergate scandal

Yahoo NewsJune 10, 2012

One of the iconic locations of the Watergate scandal will soon be no more.

No, we’re not talking about the Watergate complex itself, where the most famous burglars in American political history broke into the Democratic National Committee headquarters on June 17, 1972 – 42 years ago on Tuesday. Nor is it the former Howard Johnson hotel across the street, from which accomplices monitored the DNC office.

It’s the parking garage in Rosslyn, Va., across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., where a man dubbed “Deep Throat” met with Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward to relay covert information about the Watergate break-in – an incident that grew into a multifaceted scandal. Ultimately, in 1974, President Nixon resigned as he faced impeachment. (CSM)
