This is what all of our Democratic Representatives should be doing: Goading the Republicans to grow some Patriotic Spines to investigate the fraud in their own back yards.

Who was on Nixon's Political Enemies Hit List?

A recent Rachel Maddow show had me wondering who was on Richard Nixon's Political Enemies hit list, anyway. She reminded me that Nixon's Political Enemies list was intended to be used to investigate people who spoke out against him.

Apparently, Politicians, Celebrities Newspaper journalists, Businessmen and University Professors were included on Nixon's list which he sent to the director of the IRS instructing him to aggressively audit their tax returns.

Carol Channing, actress stated that inclusion on the list was her greatest accomplishment.
Other celebrities on the list were:
Bill Cosby, comedian
Jane Fonda, actress and political activist
Dick Gregory, comedian and civil rights and peace activist.
John Lennon, musician and activist
Steve McQueen, actor
Joe Namath, former New York Jets Quarterback
Paul Newman, actor
Gregory Peck, actor
Tony Randall, actor
Barbra Streisand, actress, singer, director, producer, writer, philanthropist, political advocate
