      "Agnew resigned after pleading nolo contendere (no contest) to a
      criminal charge of tax evasion, part of a scheme where he allegedly
      accepted $29,500 in bribes during his tenure as governor of
      Maryland. Agnew was fined $10,000 and put on three years' probation.
      He was later disbarred by the State of Maryland. His resignation
      triggered the first use of the 25th amendment, as the vacancy
      prompted the appointment and confirmation of Gerald R. Ford as his
      successor."

      A big fat crook who wanted to be an American idle as the Veep. No
      idea about "Let Us Eat Lettuce" button, perhaps some agricultural
      issue?

      I totally missed the acceptance speeches of Truman and Dewey.
      Hopefully C-SPAN will rerun them soon.
