RIP President Ford

Former President Gerald Ford has died.

In 1974, then Vice President Ford succeeded Richard Nixon who resigned following the Watergate scandal. Ford had been appointed to the job of VP after Vice President Spiro Agnew resigned after pleading no context to tax evasion making him the only unelected president in American history. Until then, Ford had served in the House of Representatives as a Congressman from Grand Rapids, Michigan. He was 93.
