39. Spiro Agnew
President: Richard M. Nixon, 1969-1973
During his tenure, Agnew regularly attacked the press, memorably calling them the "nattering nabobs of negativism." Talk show host Dick Cavett, in return, pointed out that an anagram of Spiro Agnew’s name is “grow a penis.” In 1973, Agnew was indicted for tax evasion and became only the second VP, after John C. Calhoun, to resign from office. Ten months later, his boss Richard Nixon, resigned too.
