About Spiro T. Agnew, 39th Vice President of the USA

Spiro Agnew was the 39th United States Vice President, Maryland Governor. A Maryland lawyer and executive of Baltimore County, he was elected governor of Maryland in a three-way race in 1966. He served until 1969, having been picked by Richard M. Nixon to be his Vice Presidential running mate in 1968. He was elected with Nixon that year, and reelected in 1972. In 1973 he resigned the Vice Presidential Office after allegations of bribery from taking kickbacks from road contractors when he had been Baltimore County executive and income tax evasion. He was succeeded as Vice-President by Michigan Congressman Gerald Ford, who became President when Richard Nixon resigned in the wake of the Watergate Scandal in 1974. Spiro Agnew was only the second United States Vice President to resign the office (the other being John C. Calhoun).
