The people and their scandals.

The Teapot Dome Scandal

President Warren G. Harding died one of America's favorite presidents but left us with the scandal that was the Teapot Dome. This involved an Mammoth Oil Company and an oil reserve in Wyoming. This reserve was set aside for use my the US Military but was instead sold to Henry Sinclair of Mammoth Oil and drilled for commercial use, the profits used to pay for Sinclair's personal expenses. There is no proof Harding knew of any illegal activity but people still speculate.
