The Houston Post and Oceanside Daily Blade-Tribune, a local California newspaper, had both published stories that Reedy had resigned after a disagreement with Johnson over whether the President should go to Atlantic City Wednesday night for the Democratic National Convention.
After a press office mix-up that resulted in a number of reporters turning up at the LBJ Ranch, George Reedy offers his resignation.
The operator connects the call.
President Johnson: Hello?
George Reedy: Mr. President.
President Johnson: Yeah?
