Former Roanoke Congressman Caldwell Butler is being remembered for his political courage during the Watergate era. Butler died two nights ago at age 89.  He is best known as a Republican who, in his first term, voted for President Richard Nixon’s impeachment, and as WFIR’s Evan Jones reports, Butler went to some unusual lengths before reaching his decision.
