According to author JOHN W. DEAN
, the Bush administration's cumulative misdeeds are more grievous than the Watergate break-in and cover-ups that drove Nixon from office in 1974. Dean should know – he was Nixon's White House counsel at the time and convicted of multiple felonies for his participation in Watergate. In this decade, Dean has become a public crusader against corrupt government. His latest book, Broken Government: How Republican Rule Destroyed the Legislative, Executive and Judicial Branches
, argues that the Republican Party's secrecy, corruption and sell-outs to special interests have, um, broken the government. Presented by Georgia Center for the Book and A Cappella Books, Dean reads from and signs Broken Government
