Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin tweeted out a puzzler; but relax, the quandary is answered in Government Ethics 101. Coming to the defense of Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt in a series of tweets Wednesday, Bevin said: “Let me get this straight. The media is attacking EPA ...

Spiro T. Agnew. They didn't expect to meet with Agnew, and figured they'd get arrested in the bargain.

“I've had to calm people down at times, especially when there's panic in the newsroom, like the time a really vicious tornado hit, or when (Vice President Spiro) Agnew resigned and the place went up for grabs.

Between McKeldin and Hogan, there have been only two GOP governors, Spiro Agnew and Bob Ehrlich.

He's ahead in early 2020 polls of Democratic possibilities, though you have to figure a lot of this is the result of sky-high name ID after two terms as vice-president and what seems like an eternity in the Senate (the presiding officer in the Senate when Biden was sworn in was Spiro T. Agnew, for God's sake; ...
ATTN: refers to Richard Nixon as “the gold standard of presidential corruption.” Nixon remains the only president in American history to have to resign. (He faced impeachment after the Watergate scandal.) But the publication notes that Nixon's vice president, Spiro Agnew, had to resign a year before Nixon.

The only points of comparison are the Gilded Age scandals of the Grant administration, Teapot Dome under the Harding administration, and Watergate and the bribe-taking of Vice President Spiro Agnew during the Nixon administration. But this administration is already in an unethical league of its own.

The only vice president to resign due to scandal, Richard Nixon's own Spiro Agnew, did so not because of Watergate but for the entirely unrelated reason that he received over a quarter million dollars in bribes.

My alliteration is intentional, for, along with obscure diction, this was Safire's trademark as a speechwriter for Richard Nixon's first vice president, Spiro Agnew.
