The official Watergate investigation report laid responsibility at Fred Malek's feet for a manual that sought to politicize the government and and to eliminate career civil servants who were not politically "responsive." It was noted that the techniques recommended may have violated federal civil service laws. Unfortunately, the Committee shut down without further pursuing the matter. Malek was identified as the individual who identified jewish employees at a federal agency, at Nixon's request, for the purpose of potentially removing them. Notably, Malek has not sought to redeem himself by condemning the abuses of Nixon but has devoted himself to electing and enriching Republicans following in Nixon's footsteps.

The most you can say about Malek is guilt by association with some of the unsavory characters connected with Watergate. Malek served in the Nixon administration as Deputy Under Secretary of Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, as special assistant from 1970-73 and deputy director of Nixon's re-election campaign. Although Maleks name came up during investigations and senate testimony there was never any suggestion that he had knowledge of or was party to any of the illegal activities committed. Malek is a business executive and investment enterpreneur who is or has been involved with Marriott, Coldwell Banker and Northwest Airlines. In 2003 following a civil fraud lawsuit brought by the Securities exchange commission, Malek paid a fine of $100,000 for his part in a fraudulent scheme to invest Connecticut state pension funds.

He is currently a national finance committee co-chair of John McCain's presidential campaign.
