Warren G. Harding

The presidential term of Warren G. Harding was rocked by the Teapot Dome scandal, but that was hardly the only scandal associated with the 29th President.  The Library of Congress last year released a collection of love letters written by Harding to his married "paramour," Carrie Fulton Phillips:

Just last week, DNA tests confirmed that Harding had an illegitimate daughter with his later mistress, Nan Britton.  If reality TV had existed in the 1920s, there might well have been a show called "Harding's Boo Boos," or possibly "Hanging out with the Hardings."
