The Clintons have kept reporters busy for decades, with an almost endless string of scandals following them around since Bill Clinton was first elected to public office in 1977 as Arkansas’ Attorney General. After Clinton’s two terms in the White House – bookended by news reports on Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky – focus shifted squarely to Hillary Clinton, who logged years in the Senate, at the State Department and on her own campaign trail.
As Clinton mounts her second presidential bid this year, the particularly bruising scandal involving her email system while at the State Department continues to snap up headlines. InsideGov examines this controversy and a handful of others, looking at the facts and their validity and ultimately scoring each on our handy Scandal-o-Meter. The scoring spectrum puts a non-scandal at a 0, a mega-scandal at a 10 and your garden variety, this-kind-of-thing-happens-to-most-politicians scandal somewhere between a 3 and a 6.
Click through to see which scandals should be relegated to the history books and which ones deserve further scrutiny.
