While Americans have a reputation for being strait-laced, many of the nation’s leaders (e.g., Alexander Hamilton, Warren G. Harding, Grover Cleveland, and John F. Kennedy) have been anything but puritanical. This book revisits some of the sex scandals that have rocked the nation’s capital and shocked the public. While Americans have judged their leaders’ affairs more harshly compared to citizens of other nations, did they mostly just hate being lied to? And do they now care more about issues other than a politician’s sex life?
