We noted the paradoxical and continuing GOP dominance in sex and morals scandals in recent years, not withstanding valiant attempts on the part of the Dems to get in the game (Spitzer, Edwards, et al.). We already brought you the GOP sex scandal flow chart. But if you’re more visual in inclination we’ve now prepared this official TPM GOP Sex Scandal Slideshow. Who are we missing?
Late Update: Admittedly there are a lot of GOP hounds who didn’t make it on our list. And you’ve been writing in suggesting various candidates. But there are some basic criteria we followed in assembling the list to keep some limit on all the possible examples. We decided not to go back before the beginning of the Bush presidency in 2001 (so Newt Gingrich doesn’t count, at least not for anything he’s been caught for yet) and, with a couple extreme exceptions (read: state Sen. Bob Allen of Florida) to keep it to federal officeholders and governors. So far the one suggestion I’ve seen that I think we probably should have added is former Rep. John Sweeney (R-NY).
