Political, financial, erotic, and bizarre. This is a snapshot of more than 125 scandals that have rocked the nation’s capital and beyond.

Since America’s founding, the nation’s capital has experienced more than its share of scandals; thankfully, Washington Babylon explores some of the dirtiest secrets that have occurred throughout US history. Some are from the earliest days of America’s founding and include the most famous people in history, like George Washington. Others are still fresh in our minds, as the dust has not even settled. In between, US history is littered with scandals from nearly all walks of life that were the most talked-about stories at the time. Many past scandals remain infamous, such as Watergate, Chappaquiddick, and Abscam. Other scandals that were once the biggest stories of the day have faded into obscurity. Washington Babylon reveals new details in some scandals that were not known when the story first broke, offering a whole new perspective for discussion. This is the most comprehensive collection of American scandals that will educate, entertain, shock, and perhaps, even titillate the reader.

About the Author

Mark Hyman has not done it all. But he has done a lot. And he has witnessed a lot. In more than forty years, Mark has worked and traveled around the globe in a variety of capacities. He has performed activities that so many others only talk about.

Mark’s incredible life experiences include naval officer, veteran, intelligence officer, weapons inspector, Congressional Fellow, lobbyist, business executive, writer, radio personality, television host, and Emmy award-winning journalist.

Whether it was inspecting Soviet-made weapons systems, reporting from a war zone, walking the halls of Congress, or one of his other life experiences, Mark has gained keen insight into what constitutes a great story that must be told. What sets his storytelling apart from others is he adds context, when appropriate, so the readers not only learn the who, what, when, and where, but also the why.
