How to Become a Bounty Hunter

Patrick Gray was the acting head of the FBI when he was pressured to resign on April 28, 1973, in the wake of the President Nixon Watergate scandal, the Guardian reports.

Gray’s resignation came after news that he had burned incriminating documents tied to convicted Watergate conspirator Howard Hunt.
Gray was in line to succeed J. Edgar Hoover.

Despite the allegations, he claimed he did nothing wrong and was leaving for the sake of “the reputation, the integrity and the effectiveness of the FBI.”
