Rachel Maddow on Spiro Agnew

Bag Man: The Wild Crimes, Audacious Cover-Up and Spectacular Downfall of a Brazen Crook in the White House

A criminal spewed firebrand rhetoric to rile up his partisan base, branded the press as an enemy and dismissed investigations into his antics as “witch hunts,” all to distract from a tawdry corruption scandal.

Sound familiar? Probably not, because most Americans seem to have forgotten Spiro Agnew, who served as Richard Nixon’s vice-president and had an enduring influence on our nation.

Rachel Maddow remembered, and she and Michael Yarvitz, the executive producer and co-writer of their Peabody Award-nominated podcast series of the same name, teamed up to recount and further explore this mostly forgotten but hugely important chapter of American history

Host of the Emmy Award-winning The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC and author of of two New York Times bestsellers, Ms. Maddow returns to the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center to discuss the knockdown, drag-out, untold story of the other scandal that rocked Nixon’s White House and reset the rules for crooked presidents to come.. 

In conversation with American historian Michael Beschloss.
