I didn't know, until I read this book, that Stevenson also had a "secret fund". That fact may have helped Nixon more than the Checkers Speech, because Stevenson could not personally attack Nixon over the money.
Never cared for Nixon, but I've read a great many books about him.
He was like a human car crash...don't want to look, but you can't turn away.
