The Water Fence Boys
by James Oliver Burse
The 1970s Watergate was the scandal that took the nation by storm before Shonda Rhimes television dramas. It was 1972 when burglars ambushed the Democratic National Committee office in the Watergate building, in the nations capital. Attempting to illegally wiretap phones, retrieve secret documents and steal money, the robbers and their scandal lead to the first presidential resignation in American history. The Water Fence Boys is something crazy but something different.
