George Steinbrenner

Died on July 13, 2010.

George Steinbrenner owned the Yankees baseball team. In the early 70s, he made some illegal campaign contributions to Richard Nixon, for which he got into trouble. During the late 70s and early 80s, Steinbrenner worked as an informant for the FBI in a terrorism case. The FBI has not disclosed which case. It appears that Ronald Reagan pardoned Steinbrenner for his illegal campaign contributions as a reward for becoming an FBI informant.
