"George Gordon Battle Liddy", better known as "G. Gordon Liddy" is a retired American lawyer best known as the chief operative in the White House Plumbers unit that existed from July–September 1971, during Richard Nixon's presidency.

Separately, along with E. Howard Hunt, Liddy organized and directed the burglary of the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate building in May and June 1972. After five of Liddy's operatives were arrested inside the DNC offices on June 17, 1972, subsequent investigations of the Watergate scandal led to Nixon's resignation in 1974. Liddy was convicted of burglary, conspiracy (crime)/conspiracy and refusing to testify to the Senate committee investigating Watergate. He served nearly fifty-two months in federal prisons.
