ELECTION TUESDAY FACT: “The only person to enter the White House without having been elected either president or vice president, [Gerald] Ford had been chosen by [Richard] Nixon to replace Vice President Spiro Agnew. Agnew had resigned after being found guilty of having accepted bribes while serving earlier as governor of Maryland, only the second vice president ever to leave the office voluntarily.” http://bit.ly/LvjAuR
