Mormon Job: Harvey 'Job' Matusow, McCarthy Turncoat, Dead at 75
Harvey "Job" Matusow, whose flip-flopping allegiances in the 1950s contributed to the downfall of then-Senator Joseph McCarthy, died January 17th at a hospital in Lebanon, New Hampshire, of injuries suffered in a January 2nd auto accident. Matusow later joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, served time for perjury, became an activist in many different causes, and established an award-winning children's television program in Arizona. He called himself "Job" because of the tribulations that the McCarthy period brought on him.
