if you look closely at the washington memorial, you can see a patch of discoloration on the bottom section of the structure. this is due to water damage resulting from when president nixon famously and controversially let the government open the water gate in 1973. this caused washington dc to flood and the damage took many years to repair. the american people voted to impeach president nixon for this oversight. it is widely remembered as one of the worst decisions in the world.
Actually wasn’t that because construction was stopped for a time for some reason idk but then when I started again they couldn’t get the same material
im pretty sure it was because of the water gate
Watergate was a scandal that happened in which documents were destroyed in the watergate building which lead to his impeachment. Not an actual watergate
there is a lot of conflicting information out there and probably a lot of different cover-ups to be found. who knows what really happened.
yeah guys the watergate scandal happened at the watergate hotel, democratic headquarters. and the water would never reach that level on the monument unless there was somehow a tsunami or something
i hope that one day we will know the details about what really happened so we can prevent a catastrophe like this from ever happening again.
