Political scandals are as old as politics itself. Sex, greed and self-importance often go hand-in-hand with power, money and cronyism, causing many a politician to stray from the straight and narrow. When the dirty details come out, the voters fume, comedians laugh and politicians blush.

- Teapot Dome Scandal
- Wilbur Mills
- The Moshe Katsav Rape Scandal
