Politicians are human and have all of the same human flaws. "Sex Scandal America: Politics & the Ritual of Public Shaming" goes over the history of the United States and its flawed politicians from even before the United States existed, with the not-so-pure Puritans. Over the years, sex scandles have changed from cause to hang someone to merely fodder for the likes of Jay Leno. "Sex Scandal America" is a spicy look about how scandals and American culture have changed over the years.
