Deep Throat Revealed

The Number Two FBI guy in the 70s claims he was the infamous "Deep Throat" cited by Bernstein and Woodward in their expose of President Richard Nixon. The Washington Post confirmed that Mark Felt is indeed the whistleblower. The 91-year-old's adult children convinced him it was time to come forward and get the recognition he deserves before he passes on. His daughter is quoted in some news accounts as advising him to capitalize on his historical fame, mainly to pay some bills and/or his grandchildren's education. Okay, so urging Daddy to come forward wasn't so altruistic after all. <sarcasm>Nice.</sarcasm>
