    It was a trick poll by scarcrow. It is ,however, a great example of sophism executed by the scarecrow.

    The presidency of Ronald Reagan in the United States was marked by multiple scandals, resulting in the investigation, indictment, or conviction of 138 administration officials, the largest number for any president to date.[1] The most well known of these scandals, the Iran-Contra affair, involved a plan whereby weapons were sold to Iran and the profits diverted to fund the Nicaraguan Contras, in violation of U.S. and international law.

    The HUD rigging scandal consisted of Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Samuel Pierce and his associates rigging low income housing bids to favor Republican contributors to Reagan's campaign as well as rewarding Republican lobbyists such as James G. Watt a former Secretary of the Interior. [2] Sixteen convictions were eventually handed down.[3]

    In the Sewergate scandal, officials at the EPA were found guilty of using money from Superfund to enhance the election prospects of local politicians aligned with the administration.

    The Lobbying scandal involved Reagan's Chief of Staff Michael Deaver and Reagan's Press Secretary Lyn Nofziger both being charged with lobbying improprieties.

    The EPA scandal occurred when the head of the EPA Rita Lavelle was found in Contempt of Congress and her assistant Rita Lavelle was convicted of perjury. It involving channeling of EPA funds to projects which aided local Republican politicans.

    The Inslaw Affair involved Deputy Attorney General D. Lowell Jensen and C. Madison Brewer both being held in Contempt of Congress for alleged theft of software and services from the Inslaw Corporation.

    Savings and loan crisis in which 747 institutions failed and had to be rescued with $160,000,000,000 of taxpayer monies
    Just checked a few of these claims online. USA-1 you seem good to go. I've always looked upon the Reagan years in foreign policy terms (in Europe we felt both victimised AND ignored at the same time during that period) but now I'm going to research a little deeper using your headlines as a guide.
