Sex And Politics: Federal political sex scandals since 1776


Recommended Posts

Nothing new to see here, looks like it's been going on for a long time.

"Hamilton had an affair with Maria Reynolds while both were married to other people. Reynolds’ husband blackmailed Hamilton who paid to maintain secrecy. In 1797, when Hamilton no longer held the post of Treasury Secretary, the affair was publicised by journalist James Calendar, after which Hamilton publicly apologised. Said Hamilton: “This confession is not made without a blush….I can never cease to condemn myself for the pang which it may inflict in a bosom eminently entitled to all my gratitude, fidelity, and love.” "

I think they need to update since Packwood is the last listed.  Maybe their not listing those that are alive still.

I think Barney Frank and Chuck Robb are still sucking air.


Maybe they were made an offer they couldn't refuse,  to not include him.
