Political Scandals of 2008

Political only, so Bernie Madoff and Rick Wagoner don't figure in this list. I'm sure they'll make some other list, and deservedly so. I am also not including things that are scandalous, like the bailouts, but aren't scandals per se. This is the money, sex, and power list. Who have I missed?

In no particular order
John Edwards
Elliot Spitzer
William Jefferson
Rod Blogojevich
Chris Dodd
Barney Frank
Charles Rangel
Kwame Kilpatrick
Ted Stevens (carryover from 2007)
Tim Mahoney
Jesse Jackson Jr.

Note that most of those politicians of scandal belong to the Party that cannot be named. At least the MSM is usually unable to list their party affiliation when writing about them.

No, really? What a coincidence.

Larry Craig. Wasn't that this year?

No.

I'm sorry, did that sound abrupt? Didn't mean to.
