Did you know that Timothy Leary, counterculture guru, famous for questioning authority, was also an FBI informant? Documents released after his death reveal that he was pressured to rat out his friends to reduce his prison sentence for a narcotics charge. In 1974, he struck a deal with the FBI and named the members of the radical Weathermen who helped him escape from jail in 1971.

Once dubbed "the most dangerous man in America" by Richard Nixon, Leary was released in 1976 and continued to "turn on, tune in, and drop out"  for the next twenty years. Source Article TruTV.
