Watergate figure Charles Colson dies


Charles Colson, a Richard Nixon White House operative who went to jail over the Watergate scandal and later founded a prison ministry, died on Saturday at age 80, the ministry said.
Colson, who compiled Nixon’s infamous “enemies list” before Watergate brought down the president in 1974, died of complications from a brain hemorrhage after being admitted to a hospital in Fairfax, Virginia, on March 31, Prison Fellowship Ministries said in a statement
on its website.
“It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that Chuck Colson – our friend, founder, and brother in Christ – has passed away,” the ministry’s CEO, Jim Liske, said in the statement.
