what was the water gate scandal???
Watergate is a general term for a series of political scandals during the presidency of Richard Nixon, that began with five men being arrested after breaking and entering into the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate hotel complex in Washington, D.C. on June 17, 1972. The scandal reached to the top levels of American government, and the attempted cover-up of the break-in would ultimately lead to Nixon's dramatic resignation on August 9, 1974.
sort of a series of political scandals during Nixons presidency--- it didnt result in Nixons resignation just disgust from his voters in the republican party. The deomocrats gained 5 seats in the senate and like around 40 something in the house...
Nixon did resign from office - becoming the only U. S. President to do so - August 9, 1974: Nixon resigns presidency. Gerald Ford becomes President.
yes but he only resigned later... because of his voters reactions.
