The governor of Maryland from 1967 to 1968 was chosen as a vice-presidential running mate by Richard M. Nixon in 1968. During the Nixon administration he denounced anti-war critics, flailed senators opposing the war as "radical liberals" and attacked the news media for its "biased" coverage of the war. He resigned in October, 1973 following his indictment for tax evasion.
