These are the Most Scandalous Politicians
Of course we all believe that there is no honest politician because, well, power and money are two things that would spoil a person in no time, or for at least a mandate or two. Lately, the world is facing politicians ending up in jail or being part of scandals connected with infidelity, money laundry, prostitution, or abusing of illegal substances during wild orgies. Read more to learn how they got caught.
It’s not that the world hasn’t seen these kinds of acts before even in time when people had higher morals and trusted much more in their elected representatives (for e.g. the President Kennedy and his public affair with the blond bombshell actress Marilyn Monroe).
This list contains some of the worst and in certain cases dumbest politicians and their scandals.
1 Eliot Spitzer
He is the former governor of the American state of New York and reportedly spent more than $80,000 on prostitutes during the mid 2000s when he served as New York’s Attorney General. He was finally busted for it in 2008 when he was Governor. Spitzer, who of course is a married man patronized a prostitution service called the Emperors Club VIP on at least seven occasions in late 2007 and early 2008 and was eventually caught when the New York Times ran a report about his transgressions. Poor man…Not!
2 Larry Craig
Another American Senator. He was a U.S. Senator from Idaho who was arrested after he allegedly tried to solicit an undercover police officer in a bathroom at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Craig denied the charges at first but later pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. He also finished out his term despite initially coming out and saying that he was going to resign from the Senate.
3 Bill Clinton
Maybe one of the most popular sex scandals during the nineties. The famous president of USA shocked the world back in 1998 when he admitted that he had an affair with then 22 year-old White House intern, Monica Lewinsky. Clinton was married (and still is) to Hillary Clinton. He publicly apologized for what he did, but of course, only after he was cornered to admit the scandal which he denied at the beginning. There were a lot of juicy details about the sex affair, but of course, we are not going to mention them.
4 Steve Katz
He was elected to be an assemblyman for the 99th Assembly District in New York was not in favor of legalizing medical marijuana in New York, he was pulled over in March 2013 and charged with possession of marijuana after police found pot in his vehicle. The charges against him were later reduced and he only ended up having to pay a small fine and perform community service, but the situation made him look like a huge hypocrite. Well… all politicians lie, it’s not a surprise.
5 Mel LeBlanc
Do not mix his name with the actor’s Met LeBlanc, they aren’t related. During his term as the interim deputy mayor of Arlington, Texas, LeBlanc was arrested after police discovered that he had obtained marijuana and meth from prostitutes. How they busted him? LeBlanc’s own wife had called them and asked them to investigate her husband. Sharp lady.
6 Silvio Berlusconi
The rich old man seemed like he desperately wanted to be the young stud (so besides his dyed hair) he wanted young girls around him. That’s why he was organizing orgy parties where he and his friends were enjoying sexual favors from minor prostitutes. He was connected with a minor prostitute named Rubi, who when the scandal occurred was only 17 years old. Disgusting old man, you will agree. Even though Berlusconi was denying any connection with her, later the story developed that at first the girl was dancing for him but then they got engaged in intercourse. Of course, the nude photos of the old politician surrounded with young naked girls weren’t quite helping him. He later divorced his wife, but nobody can tell if this scandal was the main reason, or Silvio was prone to such parties in the past.
