Fact of the Day:   President Nixon is the only president to resign the position of President of the United States.  Despite a speech in which he infamously stated “I am not a crook”, there is much evidence that he was, in fact, guilty of at least three felony offenses.  In total, 69 government officials were charged with crimes tied to the Watergate scandal and 48 were found guilty.  President Nixon was pardoned by President Gerald Ford shortly after the scandal and was never charged with a crime.  Nixon proclaimed his innocence until his death in 1994.
