Rather simple really, what is the weirdest scandal you have heard of? Can be political economic social etc. etc.

The reason why I'm curious is due to the ongoing "piggate" scandal in the UK where Prime Minster David Cameron is alleged to have placed his genitals into a dead pig's mouth while at university.

To be fair, anything pig related in the UK seems to have a habit of causing problems for British politicians.

In 2006, when I was still living in New York, a conservative Republican State Assemblyman was running for Governor. He dropped out of the race when it was revealed that he was having an affair on his wife with (what appeared to be numerous) aides. He then shifted to running for reelection. But, with is announcement that he was running for Governor, a local Republican Mayor jumped into the race already. So, there was a primary. It was already a bit of a scandal, but it hadn't gotten weird yet.

It got weird when the Assemblyman, finding himself on track to lose the primary, began calling his opponents vendors, specifically their pollsters trying to pretend to be him on the phone in order to find out what their internal polling looked like...

Yea...pretending to be your opponent on the phone in order to get their pollsters to give you insider info...that was weird.

Don't forget Stephen Milligan, Conservative MP found dead wearing nothing but stockings and suspenders, hanging from an electrical wire with a black bag over his head and a slice of orange in his mouth...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Milligan
The orange was a running joke for a good year in the press, despite it being the smart way to auto-erotically asphyxiate (theory being that if you pass out, your jaw will bite the slice and the citric acid will shock you back awake- lemon is the preferred choice.... don't ask how I know this)... I think he just went overkill with the black bag as well and couldn't get out

I always find it fascinating how the really rich and powerful can get exposed but the masses just treat it like normal or like nothing's wrong.

Like for example George Bush Sr's dad conspired with others to kill the US President. It was literally all brought to light, but -- you KNOW yeaaaaaah moving... and that's what the public's reaction was :D.

One of the Kennedy's slept with a 14-year old when he was 39. It's also seen as normal just because he's high and powerful :D.

I mean idk, Polanski did a 13-yo and he's marked a serious pedo. But for some reason it's fine if a Kennedy does it. Idk.

It's like mass brainwashing or something. So that's why I find it interesting. I guess they're right when they say hiding in plain sight is easier than keeping it all in the dark?

Not to mention Jimmy Page having 14 year old Lori Maddox ABDUCTED and held hostage on his tour bus as some sort of sex slave (she was willing but he rightfully thought people would be suspicious if they noticed a rich 25 year old dating a fourteen year old so had her "disappeared" away from prying eyes)- a story told (until a few years ago) as one of those "funny things the boys do on tour" stories.

Jonathan King at the same time was having sex with "consenting" underage boys- something he has gone to prison for, but Page, Steven Tyler (3 year relationship with a 14 year old girl in 1975 after BEING SIGNED OVER AS HER LEGAL GUARDIAN), Elvis (24, Priscilla was 14 and he allegedly had a younger girl living at his house), Bill Wyman off the Stones (50, Mandy Smith- 13), Doug Hutchison (Courtney Stodden was 16 but they admit to a long relationship online before) et al are fine

LOL "funny things people do on tour." Yeah the lives of the rich are so crazy. There's even that football player who shot his friend between the eyes (so basically headshot), and he lived... but the football player didn't go to jail, and no one even called it murder. He even like dumped his friend in some bushes because he thought he was dead. It was just "a disagreement when you're at the bar."
