9. She was Richard Nixon's Secretary

Responsible for 18 1/2 minutes of missing tape

[link:https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose_Mary_Woods|Fiercely loyal to Nixon, Woods claimed responsibility in a 1974 grand jury testimony for inadvertently erasing up to five minutes of the 18​1⁄2 minute gap in a June 20, 1972, audio tape. Her demonstration of how this might have occurred—which depended upon her stretching to simultaneously press controls several feet apart (what the press dubbed the "Rose Mary Stretch" )—was met with considerable ridicule. The contents of the gap remain unknown. Later forensic analysis in 2003 determined that the tape had been erased in several segments—at least five, and perhaps as many as nine.
