The DNC’s Worst Night Mare:
The former interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman was let go as a CNN commentator after leaked emails purported to show that she shared debate questions with the Clinton campaign ahead of the events. She initially denied the accusations, but Brazile eventually admitted in 2017 that the emails she sent to the campaign were “a mistake.”

Ms.Brazile later addressed rumors that the DNC unfairly favored Clinton over Bernie Sanders, the progressive Vermont senator.

“I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested,” Brazile wrote in her campaign memoir, "Hacks," which was first excerpted in Politico Magazine.

“By Sept. 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof, and it broke my heart,” Brazile said.

Brazile said she found a joint fundraising agreement document between the DNC, the Hillary Victory Fund and Hillary for America from August 2015 — just a few months after Clinton announced her candidacy.

“The agreement signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised,” Brazile wrote. “Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff.”

What Does it Matter Benghazi-gate:
Many are furious at the president for what has been called Benghazi-gate. The story behind this scandal is that after J. Christopher Stevens was murdered, the Obama Administration blamed it on the inflammatory video “The Innocence of Muslims” and said it was spontaneous. It was later revealed that it was actually a planned Al-Qaeda attack. While this scandal will probably not damage his bid for reelection, here are 10 others that damaged people’s political careers.

announced that he would resign his seat on Dec. 7 after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct, from groping to forcibly kissing.

Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., said he would resign after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct, but he hasn't revealed when exactly he would leave the Senate.

The former “Saturday Night Live” performer contended that some of the allegations weren’t true but said he would resign as he did not believe he would be able to effectively continue with his job based on the nature of the allegations. His announcement came after dozens of Democrats called for him to step aside.

Franken is expected to resign on Jan. 2, 2018.

The congressmen:(FOX NEWS)
1513861094058
Multiple congressmen have been accused of sexual misconduct this year, as well.
Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., announced on Dec. 5 that he would immediately retire from the House after multiple women alleged that he sexually harassed them while he was in Congress. Conyers reportedly settled a complaint with a former female staffer for $27,000, who claimed she was fired for rejecting his advances.

Republican Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona also announced he would resign from Congress due to misconduct allegations against him. Franks said he made some female staffers “uncomfortable” when he discussed surrogacy issues with him. He reportedly asked two female employees to be a surrogate for him and his wife.

Franks’ announcement came as the House Ethics Committee said it would probe the matter. He was the third member of Congress to leave in one week due to accusations of sexual misconduct.

The Ethics Committee also announced in December that it was expanding an investigation into Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, regarding sexual harassment claims against him. The Office of Compliance, which settles claims against members of Congress, said it settled a sexual harassment claim for $84,000 that an aide said came from Farenthold’s office.

Farenthold announced in December 2017 that he would retire.

Rep. Ruben Kihuen, D-Nev., was accused of sexually harassing a former campaign worker. She alleged that Kihuen repeatedly asked her for dates and twice touched her thigh.

Kihuen has apologized for actions that “made her feel uncomfortable” but added that he doesn’t “recall any of the circumstances she described.”

Coast to coast:
Allegations of sexual misconduct aren’t just rocking those in Washington, D.C.

California Assembly Majority Whip Raul Bocanegra, a top California Democrat, stepped down as majority whip after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment and “inappropriate and unwelcome physical contact.” Bocanegra ended his reelection campaign and said he would resign from the Assembly next year.

In Ohio, Republican state Rep. Wes Goodman resigned after he engaged in “inappropriate behavior related to his state office.” The interaction was believed to have been consensual with another male. The Independent Journal Review reported that as many as 30 individuals accused Goodman of sexually inappropriate behavior and messages.

Before Weinstein:
Ed Murray was Seattle’s mayor before he stepped down in September amid multiple accusations of sexual abuse and molestation. Multiple men accused Murray of sexual abuse; Murray has denied the allegations.

ANTHONY WEINER’S SCANDALS, FROM POLITICS TO SEXTING:
hhhh
Former Rep. Anthony Weiner rose to fame with an impassioned speech in Congress in 2010, only to be taken down by a scandal that involved "sexting" multiple women for years. He was sentenced to 21 months in prison in September on federal charges of sending sexually explicit messages to a teenage girl.

Eliot Spitzer Affair:
1-eliot-spitzer
Eliot Spitzer was the governor of New York from 2007-2008. He resigned after it was revealed that he was involved in a call girl ring. He was especially involved with a 22 year-old call girl who was known as Kristen. He was called Client 9, and in 2008 met with Kristen at Room 871 in the Mayflower Hotel. He later paid her $4,300 in cash, $1,000 of which was for future liaisons. It was eventually revealed that Spitzer paid about $80,000 in prostitutes from when he was attorney-general to when he was governor of New York. He resigned after threats of impeachment.

Chappaquiddick Incident:
1240358462342
In 1969, Ted Kennedy accidentally drove off a bridge by accident with a female passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, on board. The car landed in a tidal channel. Kennedy was able to swim away, but Kopechne drowned. Kennedy did not tell the police about the incident for 9 hours. He received a two month suspended jail sentence after pleading guilty to leaving the scene of an accident after causing injury, and his wife blamed a miscarriage on the incident. The incident hurt Kennedy’s image, and may have been a reason why he didn’t run for president in 1972 and 1976.

Lewinsky Scandal:
monica-lewinsky-scandal-re-sticking
Considered the quintessential American sex scandal, it led to the impeachment of Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States. In 1995, Monica Lewinsky was hired to work as a secretary for the White House and soon began a close personal relationship with him. From 1995-1997 they apparently had a sexual relationship. Linda Tripp, a close friend of Lewinsky, secretly recorded their phone conversations. The scandal has become one of the most famous in history and although Clinton is often viewed as a good president, his administration is scarred by this infamous scandal.

Allegations against members of the United States House of Representatives[edit]
John Conyers (D–MI)[edit]
Dean of the United States House of Representatives Congressman John Conyers of Michigan was found to have allegedly paid a settlement of $27,000 to a former member of his staff, who had accused him of sexual assault.[18] BuzzFeed reported on this settlement on November 20, 2017, including accounts of other ethical concerns associated with Conyers's office such as sexual harassment of other female staffers.[19][20][21] Conyers responded to these reports, saying, "In our country, we strive to honor this fundamental principle that all are entitled to due process. In this case, I expressly and vehemently denied the allegations made against me, and continue to do so. My office resolved the allegations — with an express denial of liability — in order to save all involved from the rigors of protracted litigation."[22]

On November 21, 2017, the House Ethics Committee launched an investigation into multiple sexual harassment allegations against Conyers.[23] Reports of a second woman accusing Conyers of sexual harassment appeared later in November 2017. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who had initially stated that Conyers was an "icon" and had done a great deal to protect women,[24] called upon Conyers to resign, and called the allegations against him "very credible", as did House Assistant Democratic Leader Jim Clyburn.[25]

On December 5, he resigned from Congress.[26]

Blake Farenthold (R–TX)[edit]

On December 7, 2017, Franks announced that he would resign on December 8, 2017.[29] According to a report in the Washington Post, Franks and his wife were struggling with infertility and Franks had asked two female staffers if they would consider serving as surrogate mothers for Franks and his wife.[30] Franks maintained that he never "physically intimidated, coerced, or had, or attempted to have, any sexual contact with any member of my congressional staff."[30]

Congressman Ruben Kihuen of Nevada was accused by a former staffer on the Kihuen campaign of repeatedly propositioning her for dates and sex.[32] When asked about the accusations, Kihuen said, "I sincerely apologize for anything that I may have said or done that made her feel uncomfortable.”[32] The chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Ben Ray Luján, and Nancy Pelosi, said that he should resign.[32]

On December 16, he announced he would not seek re-election.

Eric Massa (D–NY)[edit]
It was revealed that secret payments, totaling $100,000, had been made to two men who had accused Congressman Eric Massa of New York of sexually harassing them. Massa resigned from Congress in 2010 after being accused of sexually harassing male members of his staff.[33]
