Former Secretary of the Treasury Robert B. Anderson, who President Dwight D. Eisenhower once said deserved to be President, pleaded guilty today to income tax evasion charges and illegally running an offshore bank. Anderson, declaring that he was "deeply regretful," admitted to evading tax on $127,500 in undeclared income in 1984. Much of the money was paid to him for lobbying for controversial South Korean evangelist Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church.
