Nelson Rockefeller becoming the second appointed Vice President of the United States in less than a year in 1974. Right after Gerald Ford in late 1973 because of course having to do with President Richard Nixon's Watergate scandal that forced him to resign as President. But also having to deal with Vice President Spiro Agnew's resignation because of a tax and bribery case that he was under investigation from the State of Maryland and the U.S. Attorney's Office in Baltimore.
