Before His Fall, Spiro Agnew Drew Blood as a Tough-Talking Political Hit Man
After Nixon's landslide victory over George McGovern in 1972, Agnew was positioning himself for a presidential run. Those dreams ended in 1973 when, under pressure from a White House reeling from the mounting Watergate scandal, he pleaded no contest to charges of income-tax evasion related to kickbacks he had taken as a Maryland public official. Though Agnew never spoke to his former patron again, he did attend Nixon's funeral in 1994. "He tried to call me," Agnew said at the time of the funeral, "but I didn't take the calls." In his later years he discussed his resignation in a memoir titled Go Quietly...or Else, wrote a novel about Washington politics and worked as a businessman with international clients. In a 1980 interview he urged young people not to go into politics: "...the expectation of people...is just so high that no ordinary man can ever perform to suit them."
