John G. Tower
Booknotes, Sunday, June 30, 1991
John G. Tower discusses Consequences: A Personal and Political Memoir.

Mr. Gittines, the ghostwriter of the late Senator John Tower, provided an inside account of the political process and offered insights into Washington politics. He also spoke of the bond between President Lyndon B. Johnson and Senator Tower, especially during the time of the Vietnam War. He told how the senator made seven trips to Southeast Asia, more than any other member of Congress, to report on the war. Much of the book focused on the confirmation hearings by the Senate Armed Services Committee and the decisions made by Senator John Warner (R-VA) and Senator Sam Nunn (D-GA) to disagree with Tower's confirmation. Their allegations of the senator's misconduct throughout the years was discussed in the book as well as the ruthlessness of the politicians who sought to destroy his political career.
