China’s Chappaquiddick

Dec 5 '12

I’m just wondering: has there been research into the frequency of scandals such as this that have major political consequences. Here I’m not talking about congressmembers that get caught with a dead girl or a live boy (as the saying goes) and don’t get reelected; I’m thinking of Chappaquiddick-like events (although not necessarily involving drinking and car crashes) with national implications.
