From Wikipedia:
George Gordon Battle Liddy (born November 30, 1930) was the chief operative for the White House Plumbers unit that existed during several years of Richard Nixon's Presidency. Along with E. Howard Hunt, Liddy masterminded the first break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate building in 1972. The subsequent cover-up of the Watergate scandal led to Nixon's resignation in 1974; Liddy served four and a half years in prison for his role in the burglary.

And yet interestingly, he also went on to a flourishing career in television. He even appeared on Airwolf!

I thought he missed his calling as a comic actor when he did that episode of "Lateline" with Al Franken....
