L. Patrick Gray, who was the acting director of the FBI during the Watergate scandal, has died at 88. Gray had been back in the news recently, expressing shock that his former deputy, Mark Felt, had been "Deep Throat," the Washington Post's secret source for Watergate details.

One of Felt's apparent motivations for supplying the information was that he had been passed over as director of the FBI in favor of Gray.
