Conservatives Without Conscience John Dean talked about his book Conservatives Without Conscience, published by Viking. He argued that conservative politics in the U.S. has moved perilously close to authoritarianism. Former White House counsel John Dean, who was a prominent figure in the Watergate scandal who testified against his former boss, then-President Richard Nixon, further distanced himself from his Republican roots with criticisms of the current Republican leadership, claiming it had sullied the principles of conservatism with radical right-wing policies and Machiavellian tactics. Mr. Dean was joined by author Gore Vidal to discuss his book and political issues. After their presentations both men responded to audience members' questions.

This event, held at the home of Teddi Winograd, was Number 6 in the Great Mind Series of the Progressive Democrats of Los Angeles.
