It was not directly connected to Watergate, except it was planned and executed by Gordon Liddy and Howard Hunt, who later masterminded the break-in into the offices of the Democratic National Committee in the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C.

Drop dead!” Dubbed the “safe schools czar,” Jennings was anything but safe.

Outraged by incumbent Republican Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler’s vote to impeach former President Donald Trump in the wake of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol, St. John decided to try and unseat her in the GOP primary by appealing to MAGA voters, denouncing public libraries as “evil organizations,” and pledging to “be a mom for America.”
