G Gordon Liddy Net Worth
Political figure G. Gordon Liddy's estimated net worth of approximately $5 million hasn't come easily. Even more than most people with a high net worth, he has a large number of enemies. His career in the government began after he graduated law school, when he got a job in the FBI. Despite one of his supervisors referring to him as a "superklutz," he ended up being promoted to the job of Washington DC Bureau Supervisor at age 29, making him the youngest person ever to hold that title. He left the bureau in 1962 in order to open up a private practice, which eventually led him to Richard M. Nixon, whose presidential campaign he worked for. He continued to move up through the ranks of Nixon's administration, until he was placed in charge of the Committee To Re-Elect the President, or C.R.E.E.P. It was in this position that Liddy orchestrated many nefarious plans on behalf of the Nixon Administration, including blackmail, covert surveillance, and other techniques designed to undermine Democratic candidates. It was Liddy who eventually took the fall during the Watergate scandal, serving a prison sentence of four and a half years. Since being released from prison, Liddy has continued to be a public figure, appearing as a conservative pundit on TV and in radio.
