"сантехники"
Группа сотрудников аппарата президента Р. Никсона [Nixon, Richard Milhous] и их подручных (из бывших сотрудников ЦРУ [CIA]), осуществивших взлом штаб-квартиры Демократической партии [Democratic Party] в столичном административно-гостиничном комплексе "Уотергейт" [Watergate Affair] (1974). По приговору суда многие из них получили различные сроки тюремного заключения. Табличка с надписью "Работают сантехники" висела на двери помещения, где размещалась группа в Старом административном здании [Old Executive Office Building] через дорогу от Белого дома. Одной из задач группы было "заткнуть утечку" информации о незаконных делах администрации в прессу ["plug the press leaks"]. Ныне выражение обозначает лиц, занятых попытками предотвращения утечки секретной информации и ликвидацией последствий такой утечки
