Richard Nixon had the White House swimming pool filled in, to give reporters more room when covering White House events.

After Richard Nixon resigned on August 9, 1974, and Gerald Ford became President, his friends had another pool dug on the White House lawn.

The Watergate scandal forced Richard M. Nixon to resign the Presidency.
