Scooter Libby has been convicted in Federal Court of obstruction of justice, two counts of perjury and one count of false statement to the FBI.

For his role in Watergate, which he coordinated with Hunt, Liddy was convicted of conspiracy, burglary and illegal wiretapping, and received a 20-year sentence. He served four and a half years in prison before his sentence was commuted by President Jimmy Carter.

Of course, I also confuse Scooter’s boss, Dick Cheney, with the old creepy actor Lon Cheney. Can’t imagine why.

  1. And, Patrick Fitzgerald and Peter Fitzgerald.

    I never could understand Liddy selling himself as a some sort of outstanding citizen. He was jailed as a criminal and deeply associated with one of the most corrupt White House administrations in US history. Plus, he’s a lawyer and pretends to be some sort of spy expert. He was so inept as a spy that his team got busted and brought down a White House administration…hardly a roaring success.

    Now, there is another Liddy to worry about – Edward Liddy, CEO of AIG. Is this a family thing?
