ABSTRACT
The article reports that in the mid-1970s Fred Malek, personnel director of U.S. President Richard Nixon, was paddling fast to avoid being swamped by the unfolding Watergate scandal. Malek made a hefty campaign donation to Illinois Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka. He did serve a stint as deputy chair of the Republican National Committee, but mostly he engaged in the process of making a buck. He formed Washington, D.C.-based investment firm Thayer Capital Partners LLP. On September 27, 2002, according to official minutes, Malek and an associate appeared before the board of the Illinois State Board of Investment, which invests billions of dollars for pension plans that cover most state workers.
