press and the Jewish com-
munity are two groups with
special reasons to remember
Watergate: they remember
the undercurrents of anti-
Semitism that were revealed
with the publication of Nix-
on's secret White House
tapes.
Malek, loyal even after all
these years, tries to explain
the climate created by Nix-
on's frequent outbursts.

"I don't think Nixon was
anti-Semitic, but he was
capable of going off on tirades
against any and all groups,"
Malek says. "He'd go off
against the foreign service,
against lawyers — remember,
he was a lawyer himself. And
generally there were a lot of
erroneous type requests that
would come out of these
tirades."
The Washington Post story
that knocked him out of the
Bush campaign, he argues,
had a devastating impact on
him. Although the story con- -
tained little new information,
it implied that Malek was
benefiting from the removal
of important documents from
the presidential archive,
allegedly to protect a number
of former Nixon associates
who were now in the Bush
campaign.
Although the Postarticle
referred to a missing 1971
memo from Malek to Halde-
man "re Bureau of Labor
Statistics, the reporters
learned nothing about the its
contents.
"My first reaction was con-
fusion," Malek says. "I was
confused because the story
had been written 12 years
ago. I had not done anything
new, I had not done anything
dramatic. It was an isolated
instance 17 years ago; I had
apologized for it. But I also
knew it would be a political

issue, and be damaging to
George Bush."
If the story had surfaced
after Bush's election, Malek
suggests he might have held
on. But the campaign was
already in trouble with
Jewish voters, and the linger-
ing stain of Watergate
guaranteed that the national
spotlight would remain fixed
on him, not on George Bush.
In his efforts at explana-
tion, Malek never implies
that the Jewish community
overreacted to the Post's
disclosures. Indeed, today
Malek seems curiously
unaware of the shock and
dismay that rippled through
the Jewish community in the
wake of the controversy.

"lb be honest," he says, "I
wasn't reading the Jewish
newspapers. In a situation
like this, the people you're
most apt to hear from are
your friends. I probably
received 300 phone calls and
letters, and a large proportion
came from friends who are
Jews. All of them were highly
supportive; all of them know
I am not anti-Semitic."
He mentions the support of
New Jersey Senator Frank
Lautenberg and Larry Tisch,
a well-known Jewish business
leader. He says he was buoyed
by a statement by Anti-
Defamation League director
Abraham Foxman which
pointed out the possibility
that Malek's actions might
have been just an incident of
bad judgment, not a symptom
of an underlying anti-
Semitism — comments which
immediately sparked a
furious reaction in the press.
Throughout the entire
ordeal, Malek says he re-
ceived no negative mail from
the Jewish community, no
hostile calls.
In response to a question,
