Watergate

40 years ago today "The Plumbers", a secrete presidential tactical team, broke into Democratic Party Headquarters at the Watergate Hotel in Washington DC. After the famous words "I am not a crook", President Richard Nixon was found to have run a White House that reporters Woodward and Bernstein of the Washington post, called an organized criminal administration. Nixon resigned rather than face impeachment, saying "You won't have Nixon to kick around any longer."

Some good came out of Watergate. Chuck Colson was one of the “Watergate Seven,” and was sentenced to an Alabama prison. Sometime during his ordeal, he became a Christian and founded a non-profit prison ministry called "Prison Fellowship." In fact, if you have ever participated in the Angel Tree gift-giving program at Christmas, you supported Colon’s ministry. Though Colson died earlier this year, "Prison Fellowship" lives on helping inmates their families.
