No More Secrets - Deep Throat Revealed
Well, there's no more mystery in the world - Deep Throat has been revealed.
All you have to do is read the article to figure it out:
"Breaking a silence of 30 years, former FBI official W. Mark Felt stepped forward Tuesday as Deep Throat, the secret Washington Post source that helped bring down President Nixon during the Watergate scandal. Within hours, the paper ratified his claim..."
"...Felt, who lives in Santa Rosa, Calif., is said to be in poor mental and physical health because of a stroke. His family did not immediately make him available for comment, asking the news media to respect his privacy "in view of his age and health...."
"...According to the article, Felt once told his son, Mark Jr., that he did not believe being Deep Throat "was anything to be proud of. ... You (should) not leak information to anyone."
His family members thought otherwise, and persuaded him to talk about his role in the Watergate scandal, saying he deserves to receive accolades before his death. His daughter, Joan, argued that he could "make enough money to pay some bills, like the debt I've run up for the children's education"..."
There it is! Grandpa had a stroke, the kids need money, so they're exploiting his secret to pay the bills.
"...A grandson, Nick Jones, read a statement. "The family believes that my grandfather, Mark Felt Sr., is a great American hero who went well above and beyond the call of duty at much risk to himself to save his country from a horrible injustice," it said. "We all sincerely hope the country will see him this way as well."..."
Well, Nick, I think that about half of the country, the blue half, will see it this way. I think the other half will see you and your family as opportunists who don't care about dragging Nixon's name through the mud again as long as you can make a buck.
