Kennedy's Dirty Tricks?

While the Episconixonian jury is still out on Mark Feldstein and his new book about Richard Nixon and Jack Anderson -- the author questionably asserted during a radio interview that Nixon had pocketed $100,000 from Howard Hughes -- this Feldstein article alleging campaign shenanigans against Nixon in 1960 deserves a look:
In one of the least-known chapters of 20th-century political history, Kennedy operatives secretly paid off an informant and set in motion a Watergate-like burglary that sabotaged Nixon's campaign on the eve of the election.
