U.S. presidents for the past two hundred years have wrestled with scandal, from Washington to Clinton.


Editorial printed in the Boston Gazette regarding Jefferson and the slave who bore him a son - 

Thou Sally, thou my house shall keep,
My widower’s tears shall dry!
My virgin daughters - see! They weep -
Their mother’s place supply.
Oh Sally hearken to my vows!
Yield up thy sooty charms -
My best beloved! My more than spouse,
Oh! Take me to thy arms.
