    Which was the most egregious political scandal?

    Watergate, Iran Contra, the Monica Lewinski affair, or the mess in Bengazi?

    The idea to add "gate" to every scandal.

    The Iran Contra Affair. Some of the convictions and indictments were pardoned by Reagan and the rest at the end of GW Bush Sr's time in office. No one was held accountable.

    Benghazi isn't even a scandal. All the others involved presidents actually breaking the law. Obama did absolutely nothing wrong during the Benghazi attack or afterwards, and the Republicans are just trying to repeat the same lies over and over again to see if they stick.

    How about the one that causes us to add an unnecessary suffix onto every scandal, which is so damn annoying.

    Iran Contra-gate. Selling weapons to the Ayatollahs? Who thought that was a good idea? Oh wait, this guy:

    The Iran-Contragate. The entire concept was so outrageous and illegal that the mind boggled. Everyone circled the wagons around Reagan (I can't remember) and Bush Sr. (I can't recall), who left a couple of their lackeys to fall on their swords for a couple of months until they could be pardoned. Oliver North, who should have been stripped of rank and dishonorably discharged, had his convictions tossed out and was basically given immunity for testifying before congress about all the crimes he participated in, even those he'd never even been charged with.

    It was a national disgrace and a travesty.

    Iran-Contra was horrible, but people still don't get that the whole process was put into motion in 1953 not with the hostages

    Iran Contra - hands down. Nobody had to take responsibility, thanks to Reagan and Bush. /shrug

    I remember the Ollie North bumper stickers /flashback
