 Since America’s founding, the nation’s capital has experienced more than  its share of scandals; thankfully, Washington Babylon  explores some of  the dirtiest secrets that have occurred throughout US  history. Some  are from the earliest days of America’s founding and  include the most  famous people in history, like George Washington.  Others are still  fresh in our minds, as the dust has not even settled.  In between, US  history is littered with scandals from nearly all walks  of life that  were the most talked-about stories at the time. Many past  scandals  remain infamous, such as Watergate, Chappaquiddick, and Abscam.  Other  scandals that were once the biggest stories of the day have faded  into  obscurity. Washington Babylon reveals new details in some  scandals that  were not known when the story first broke, offering a  whole new  perspective for discussion. This is the most comprehensive  collection  of American scandals that will educate, entertain, shock, and  perhaps,  even titillate the reader.
