Hunt Given a Rich Kid

Bob Bennett of the Mullen PR firm where Howard Hunt work continued to be helpful. Bennett had a nephew we might use as a plant. He was at Brigham Young University and thinking of getting into the campaign to gain credits. Again Magruder approved the expenditure of funds from Porter and the youngster, Thomas Gregory, was also placed in the Muskie camp. Hunt flew the kid from Provo Utah to Washington D.C. to brief him. Hunt used the alias Warren. Gregory became RUBY II m GEMSTONE terms, “Fat Jack” having already been designated RUBY I. Hunt met the kid for debriefings every week in a drugstore in downtown Washington. The kid was given a phone number for urgent info.
