How could he have supported HW Bush's presidency when Jaworski died in 82?

Fair use rationale for Image:Ljaws.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Ljaws.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Watergate Section[edit]

I found the chronology confusing. For example, is Alexander Butterfield's testimony regarding the existence of the White House taping system, July 13, 1973 (?) the source of Jaworski's knowledge? When was the substance of the tapes released to the public? In the second paragraph of the section, in what year does this "August" reference fall ... 1973? If so, why is Jaworski, presumably in 1974, jumping over the appellate court system to the Supreme Court? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:43, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

I always thought that the tapes were handed over before Jaworski came into office. I could be wrong though... Gerard von Hebel (talk) 20:59, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Turns out I am wrong, although I do think Nixon decided to hand (at least some of) them over just before Jaworski was appointed. Gerard von Hebel (talk) 21:05, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Photo for Leon Jaworski[edit]

Can someone verify that this is actually a Library of Congress photo? I found it here. Eegorr (talk) 20:33, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Was Jaworski gay???[edit]

Was Jarwoski gay? Did he ever marry? My understanding is that he was gay, but the article makes no mention of this, and no mention of family/wife. Does anybody know? Thanks in advance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:24, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Jaworski had been married to "Jeanette" for decades at the time of his service as Watergate special prosecutor, according to his book Bold textThe Right and the Power. (Jaworski & Jeanette had long since agreed not to discuss pending cases, which sheltered her from Nixonian harassment during Watergate --the White House was threatening to send the FBI to interrogate spouses of Special Prosecutorial staff.)

As this article notes, his grandson is a mayor in Texas. Jakob3 (talk) 14:55, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
