Nineteen years after Spiro T. Agnew resigned in disgrace as vice president in the wake of a kickback scandal, the official bust of Mr. Agnew, a former Maryland governor and Baltimore County executive, is to be placed among busts of other vice presidents in the Capitol. That no bust has been placed is more a matter of the process being overlooked, not a "conscious snubbing" of Mr. Agnew, a Republican Rules Committee aide said.
The Evening Sun would like to know what you think. Do you feel Mr. Agnew has been snubbed? Since he resigned after pleading contest to tax evasion charges, does he deserve to have his marble likeness placed there?
