In honor of Sen. Ensign’s little tryst, our friends at FamousDC have been hard at work sifting through the “best” political scandals of the decade. My personal favorite? Vito Fossella and his “love child.” That’s not only quality scandal, its klassy too.
The list is below but check out their explanations for each honoree here.
10. Sen. John Ensign + married staffer who was apparently paid in dollar bills.
9. Rep. Don Sherwood + back rub rejecting mistress
8. Rep. Tim Mahoney + His jobless mistress
7. Rep. Vito Fossella + mother of his child that was not his wife
6. Sen Larry Craig +….
5. Sen. David Vitter + D.C. Madam Hooker
4. Sen. John Edwards + Cici from Poison
3. Former Governor Elliot Spitzer + $$$$$ Hooker
2. Rep. Mark Foley + pages
1. Marion Barry + “the bitch”
