On September 5th, 1975, Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, wearing a bright red robe and standing about two feet from the President, aimed a loaded pistol at Gerald Ford in Sacramento, California’s Capitol Park. Several witnesses heard a “click” but the gun did not fire. This is a panel discussion recounting the life and trial of “Squeaky” Fromme. The panel consists of attorneys who prosecuted and defended Ms. Fromme, a secret service agent who witnessed the attack and the author of the book “Squeaky: The Life and Times of Lynette Alice Fromme." To this day, the attorneys still disagree about the motivations of Ms. Fromme – did she want to kill President Ford or was she merely trying to make a political point? The Eastern District of California Historical Society hosts this event.
