where woodward met with ‘deep throat’

from watergate scandal posted in history by nevereatshreddedwheat

In late 1972 through 1973 Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward met six times with his source 'Deep Throat' at a parking garage (specifically spot 32D) at this location in Arlington, Virginia. With Deep Throat's information, President Nixon's role in the Watergate coverup was exposed which led to Nixon's resignation in 1974.

In 2005 it was revealed that Deep Throat was Mark Felt, the FBI's number two man at the time.

A historical marker marks the spot where they met. As of 2013 the garage is still standing, although there are rumors that it will soon be torn down.
