Nixon Investigation

It’s late June, 1972. Five men have just been arrested for breaking in to the DNC headquarters, located in the Watergate Hotel in Washington DC. The FBI has begun investigations, and find a link between the burglars and the Committee to Re-elect the President, an organization with ties to sitting President Richard Nixon. Meanwhile, the war in Vietnam is dragging on, and on the home front people are struggling with a new economic crisis, dubbed stagflation. Confidence in the White House is beginning to fade. The Nixon administration is tasked with running a country on the verge of crisis, while also trying to preserve their careers and freedom as the details of the Watergate investigation reveal a conspiracy at the heart of the American government.

 Dan is a third year from more places than there's space to list. He is studying history and philosophy, with a hope to pursue a gradaute degree in education. He chaired a WGSS committee in VAMUN last year, and served as Vice Chair the year before. He has also served as a Crisis Director for VICS (our collegiate MUN conference). Despite serving as a delegate all throughout High School, upon arriving at University he decided to spend his time running committees rather than winning them. Outside of MUN, he is also involved in the Jefferson Literary and Debating Society (the oldest student organization at UVA), as well as the newly founded YDS chapter. His only interest outside of chairing VAMUN is waiting for next year's VAMUN.

 Avery is a second-year student intending to major in Government and Economics. Avery did MUN for all 4 years in high school and had a fantastic time working at both VAMUN and VICS before. Outside of MUN, Avery is proud to serve as an RA and a Student Council representative. Outside of that, his whole life is politicking, decorating his room with antique campaign materials and working on campaigns nonstop. Avery is thrilled to work on this commottee and hopefully finally show that, outside the whole watergate thing, Nixon wasn‘t that bad. He could‘ve been worse.
