popularly turn dirty tricks but because the patient use activities was on myown volition and i was initially paid a modest salary for the purpose of causingconfusion disruption and malcontents most democratic presidential primary candidatesafter participating in some of the affirmation activities either by myselfor reading a list of simmons how to be paid seven hundreddollars monthly for activities to take place just before during and after the democratic nationalconvention in miami beach no provocations illegalities or veryfrank carried out that summer because of the watergate break in and he the investigations wouldfollow i'm very political ventures relating to these activities took place there forsometime between december nineteen seventy one to about people are making in seventytwo or a period of approximately six months i providedthis committee with verbal report all that i can recall that was done for mr security

political background and he asked me what i thought about negative campaigningwas wade putting out i expressed interest in aunfortunately and out when i asked him about his background hewas it was pretty basic you imagine that he was agraduate of yale i was twenty nine arethat dumb he was from a very wealthy family was interestedin getting involved in the electionwell i wascorps understand the scope of what he meant but i knew that serving with positive campaignwas and i'd seen some negative campaigning in previous campaigns too much lessdegree but i had a pretty good idea what he met and if youagree to work for mr simmons you oh yes sir yeah
in a way i was and it was like you were hired at thattime he said he would get back in touch with me a week or ten days he gave me some money idon't remember the exact amount forty dollars fifty dollars sixty something that sort and icontacted me of my phone in about a week or ten days laterand did you arrive at an agreement for compensation for your workwould you agree to compensation yesa hundred and fifty dollars out to be paid initially for the first few monthsand then the same work something out later two moreand for your work wellnot that out later that the fear was that seven hundred dollars was tostart out in april about marriage was to run outbefore the convention during the convention and also some post convention activities by convention of thenational democratic convention in miami beach i think this

before calling representing myself as a distraught lucysupporter and mention something had taken place orwas very upset about the third been done by someone lean seasoncamp and that there should be expecting some ofwhat pressures are surely are dealing with and then i gave him the address ofthe law once the headquarters where you go down and check it out the callsto senators he's reported yes the evening before i've taken some of theinvitations to put them in a front door and lindsay headquarters of theunion address a rock on it and knowing that the morning to come pickthem up and bring them inside the musty aides to come to the headquarters ofprobably find the eggs inside headquarters thank youwhich
focuses on this conception that this committee seems to heavilythe purposes of what was done ourand others question just by center urban bias and a gurney about thisthese were these things were being done not done to influence votesnecessarily all seen that fifty it was because they were having to do withthat letter the sexual letters that is they were going to i think fifty people the perfectprimer bison fifty letters out letters and then another they were expected to bebrought to notice the candidate sent them and for him to of course be upsetabout it for him to blame possibly another candidate running in the democraticprimary he was to give candidates back biting each other possible to start doingit to each other and outside of our activities that were necessary to influence votesif we could get say sen jackson very very upset senatormcconnell for something that was done after the convention he might raise

campaign huge opposition well theirpolitical prank call this or there are there's the campaign ever seen orhaving been simply pranks not at this point no but they were surprisedwhen the craziest periods for wild side and campaigned yesterdayby people working for the campaignsyou were a student and we wasted oftime just in the activities it was really just foryou a big hit in europe opening statement that you initially paid a modestsalary and you wouldn't guessmy understanding records you were neverknows the lively those starting june seven hundred dollars a month andmaybe i'm moving to the army's fort lauderdale and i receive advanced ithink for five hundred dollars that was to be taken from
prorated next three months and has received five hundred dollars a month of june july augustas it turned out i did not receive anything at that time did youcontinue with the same model selling start with roger and then newswhat was their selling video was among the lawyers seeyou know i receive waivers this is an oversightnow a survey to contact you with regard to make acampaign engages present interest in that and said it yet anyhesitation all about is playing in his activitieswell they're talking about the initial contact with exactly where would his activities were going tobe one of the two i did have some misgivings about takingpart in it out i wasn't sure what i was gettinginto it was more gradual thing i guess i just keptgetting bigger and bigger all myself to understand correctly that you do this if you're loosing
yes it was just what was just not persuaded with political favorsand anytimethere's this really ever tell you that he was employed by thecrp the republican committee working for anyone in the world is are wegoing to believe thevariety who was working for who is working with where he was getting his money andactually i was curious about he would reply i don't know which of course he wasputting the arm he told me that after the election would say that i have an ice coldbeer the political situation maybe only the voicewith the songs he's resigned is no costsome of them online a minority
of the alamo several work at that way where myideas but mostly i was working on his direction there were some things that weredone that i did on my own but i thought about it do you know how muchplanning and the preparations usually there wasa lot of preparation i'll often think of somethingover the fall or in the cases i mentioned the miami when we talk about the instrument something andmaybe do it next week or the next day here some things neverfive weeks and three days you know you do thiswell ithink one thing i do believe we had a scheduling of all it was very gentlecalendar issues i understand therewas one instances justify millions morningwhere the source of the material distributed
yes sir it wasthe center for energyyes siryesterday at the university of miamidemocratic organization on campus wasdivided into several groups of three different candidates the democratic presidential candidatesthe opera that had the muscle table set up and this information on the tablethat's right and the students trust in government was thatthey made you put on the bottoms of the names on the closer that was a name was on theremy guess is that the most curious nation that want tohave their catalog but nevertheless it was on the table it maynot be printed by the end they were distributed and up it more or less went
into contradictions of settlement covers voting record and what he means that articledid you everinfiltrating in againif you're taking part in any act of violence in thecampaign not you know whether yourlittle plants that result in violencethat wasyou just like this morning that on march fourteenth the day beforethe primary you say it says to headquarters flowersthat are usually even you stink bombsdo you seriously think that any of these activities had anyimpact on the outcome prior years in what way
out on the four primary itself possibly not ahbut certainly had an effect on the candidates certainly didn't help center muskienot my understanding is that it was not your intentthat's rightitindirectly at this could be treated having some effect of the veryslight only in the fact that if a candidate gets irritated it might cause goingto be casualties before groupit has also beenengaged the jew certain demonstrations it yourimpression that these demonstrations also well have some effect on voterswell that's the beginning not necessarily yourdemonstration of industries gem i'm not convinced they
have a direct effect on the vote as far the demonstrations concernthat kind of commonplace now especially during a presidentialelection times but the purpose of it was that the center must be another candidatewas speaking somewhere scientific place in a position wherevets could pick them up it reduces or less the pedestal effect the candidatestanding there all by itself without any indication of other candidateswrap you have a close relative of candidates looks more like a lot of them are sort ofpsychological what we're listening towell you might say i was regretting itwasn't jumping for joy about it i'm not sure i realized exactly whati was doing when i was doing it
especially when the investigating story that was more scary than anything else andafter that it became a new to thepressure of the investigators in a press call last week i had more time to reflectabout just what i was doing and i ireally can't say that at the time was i regretted it otherwise i imagined i would be doing itat the time we were in that these activities you feel that you arephysically in a type of activity that was on partial american political systemwellenough in that way and i don't feel that it was part of parcel of the american system amuch bigger scalelike sabotage than possibly earlier and that person notthat like i always say that when i have seen other campaigns ofthese activities that take part in that the
press recently things were not to thisscope of silicon valley a place that i can put itcategoryit's been scarysoyour conclusion is ridiculous ourdemeanor of those surveyed i was happy with thestockades i very much regretted you apersonal ban metal misgivings are secondary to the guilt i feel
the senators and people that i'm a per person whoagain feel regretsmr realizing not necessarily when i was caughtdoing this i suppose by theaugust septemberoctober november it was something i wasn't doing itpolitically edgy humori guess ambitions like many things like thatthat hurdle was overambitious and i was expecting to have highcontact with germs that was working with an idea wasmaybe the white house for reelection committee and why
it is a short term success rate very very unfortunatewe got away with the senator and i've not been i sure youdon't feel he uses guilt i gather fromyour responses this morning to show you are not aware of the mississippi and its real identityuntil after the election itself was anunusual womanto lose someonewell i was in the senate is using theadvent of advice that my cells possibly not just the two of them maybeusing you know i was thinking about the election ad job in washingtoni'm not rationalizing doing my actions at allanything or is it can be done the city well well
deserved but it's it's not supposed to make a difference as you now havewhat two weeks ago or two weeks from now if we were concerned about thedesertas to persist yes andit began with the pranks start getting more moreintense yeah i was aware of some of the things that was doing were not legalso it was unusualweavingspiderit's easy now back as they say forget it don't bother mebut as i said earlier tobeing uninsured and overly ambitious andas
republicans so activitiesand it would be so committed with theseactivities on ethical immoral illegal also advertise anunethical becausethey'll three and distribution of misleading literature withdoctor identify missiles or the store that mysource of personal faithinvitations to nonexistent events saying fake pressreleases saying false rumors designed to the candidateof the opposition party is saying veryfoolish same thingwere you referring
to in that situation is alotof killings and all the metalforming material suppliers who religious limousines in the act ofan opposition candidate with no intention that sayinviting a master's of foreign countrieswisdom to avoid responsibilityyesbut is there something wrong with gems of hisviews on the table to not being able to selectfreely that as candidates yesterday as an
audio conclusion that in florida the people of florida whowere not given the right to really select the bestcandidate i think it's a sweeping generalities abit most people were not because of my activities i think most people were verymuch aware of the activities were taking place the candidates themselves were not that many ofthose affected however i i really believe if one person affected byadversely that was wrong there's you have a choice a decisionas the distribution of literaturewhen he goes what you
usually dotheothers thosecharacters operation on it yesterday and i think that's reallywhat was going to really have any effect on theselection or what kind of distribution did you marrywell senator bernie for answers to thequestion that the militia that was distributed wasn't necessarilystrategic the person receiving itwasn't even of the fifties or passed out fifty are not going to fight theelection very well you were going was that we were expecting at least one of thosefifty two we raised enough to show that the candidate acandidate to become upset about playing out another candidate in
the primary election because this court the content andit wasn't a sort of a direct effect on the effect on the candidatesagreed i might come outevery one of the one hundred senators to seven and i stayed silent about all kinds ofdirty tricks played on him because a political campaign than we expecteddozensof families hereyou don't really pay much attention to itwell anyway distribution did you might and incidentally i'm notminimize his detractorssalaries
deliberations here perhaps will produce legislationwas it will be better able to control this whatabout the distribution give us some examples of how and whythat you distributed some of these mines well iwas in art of these examples university of miami shows a flyer thatwas around campus are former secretary ofthe interior udall was supposed to speak out on behalfof a leader the young democrats on campus are they decided tocancel his engagement there because they thought it was maybe less effective speaker we foundout about a week of flies over camp is announcing the time andplace a previously settled canceled secretary he'll be speaking so theyhad to put him back on the schedule andgo very well the speech levy speaking to when he was
being hosted by the end democrats are speaking just in but toembark on the candidates it has certainly used to say let'sgo into syria and you know making sure routes are you knowwell if i'm going to report not thateffect is biggerthere was testimony rangedthat word i'm not completely clear oni think there were those would be from lindsay are notmuslims dance or humphreys a letter which on it stands forisrael feels that israel should be treated the same way as cuban relations to cubathese are passed out and put under the windshield wipers carve parkinsonadvance our mind maybe ahundred two hundred those
guys much effect on the election or againsther i can of course but a statistic what it did interms of poachers very small yellow lever that the purpose was nottrue that votes in the florida primaries to talk about the discomfortamong candidates yet the backbiting and to make a few years haveimagined that some of their work to thawmayor ed sullivan was ceo of a fake press releases does thatmost of the cuban operated not supportive as much military assistance forisrael is seldom us politicsso whatis it r because that was the one big issue of coursei'm only jewish population and they counter images were
cultures to theoccasion in the center of moscowsanders made a notation here that you helpeddistribute a reprint of the newsweek article about mrs ma's aswell as familyexhibits for reagan had tojoblessness yasser was written by newsweek and how many milliondollar rebranded pass gas i believethisis npr newshe's with the washington
postwellthat would've been working as acomplimentary i think what we were doing there was so much of it thaton improvingyou work in florida are explicitly exemptfrom a trip to washington as did many people work withyou people that i only hire arefrain from using friendship level associates the reason thati wasn't overly proud of what i was doing even though i didnot i want a secret letters and even about it and i wasliving at home if i know if i was gettinginto it also how many were engaged in your operation
how many people did you lie about one every time thedifferent times i would say and it'stwenty people i suppose that handed out leaflets andlet's say between twenty three children livethereyes sir isn't it true that there were thousands ofyoung people in florida and a republican side and also on thedemocrats who were working out in legitimate waysfor reelection of president nixon and also the campusit's
