Today he is in prison for crimes he rom milled and helped others to commit. This series of seven articles is his version of what happened anti Why excerpted from a a Iii american life one Man s Horn toll it is reprinted by permission of athenaeum publishers by Jeb s. Magruder North american notepaper Radunc my main concern in february As Liddy awaited a third meeting with Mitchell was the March 7 primary election in new Hampshire. We had two goals in new Hampshire to test our Campaign techniques and to demolish the presidents two Republican challengers reps. John Ashbrook and Paul Mccloskey. The Early polls looked so encouraging that we decided not to spend any Money on television advertisements. Instead we chose to rely heavily on an extensive direct mail program one that As i told Mitchell in a memo reflected a the Best that is known from both the commercial and political this direct mail program was tied in with our Telephone program. Our Telephone canvassers noted on ism cards whether each Republican voter was favourable unfavourable or undecided about the president. If the voter was undecided the Volunteer would note on the card what issues most concerned the a ter this card was fed into a computer which sent that voter a letter with material on the presidents position on the Issue in question. This letter would then be followed by a second phone Call to see if it had caused the voter to decide in favor of the president if so the voter would be called in the get out the vote drive at the end of the Campaign. This program in new Hampshire came at a time when we were still experimenting with techniques to persuade the undecided voter. Eventually our experience in the Early primaries led us to halt this kind of persuasive activity and to concentrate instead on getting our sure pro Nixon voters to the polls. The direct mail operation in new Hampshire seemed to work Well and it was subjected to follow up analysis that led to modifications and improvements in subsequent primaries. Yet our mailing program which was entirely legitimate was subject to the kind of slippage that afflicted so Many aspects of the Campaign. The problem once again was Chuck Colson he was obsessed with the idea of instigating a write in vote for sen. Edward m. Kennedy in the democratic primary in new Hampshire. His idea was that if enough democrats could be persuaded to vote for Kennedy a who Wasny to on the ballot and said he Wasny to a candidate for anything a it would Cut into Muskie s vote sow ill will Between Kennedy and Muskie and generally create confusion among the democrats. Naturally Colson wanted to use our mailing lists and wanted us to pay the several thousand dollars that the postage and other costs would come to. I discussed Colson a scheme with Mitchell and we were both dubious about it we liked the idea of showing disunity among the democrats but we weren to convinced that one mailing would do very much. It seemed like a Large outlay for a dubious result so we stalled hoping Colson would drop the plan then one Day in february i was in the White House and encountered Colson just outside the presidents office. A a we be got to get that mailing going a he told me. A live just come from talking to the president and he thinks it s i returned to my office and called Haldeman who told me that what Colson said was True the president did want the pro Kennedy mailing in new Hampshire. I reported to Mitchell and we agreed to go along with the plan. Once again it was what i called a throwaway decision a matter of Mitchells going along with some dubious White House plan because it would please the president or because it a a his idea on to a
