Deep Throat is the pseudonym given to the secret informant who provided information to Bob Woodward of The Washington Post in 1972 about the involvement of United States President Richard Nixon's administration of what came to be known as the Watergate Scandal. Thirty-one years after Nixon's resignation, Deep Throat was revealed to be former Federal Bureau of Investigation Associate Director Mark Felt.

Do you know any other scandals that rocked the White House?

Black Friday - 1869

Ulysses S Grant, Seventeenth President of the United States
Ulysses S. Grant's administration was rife with scandal. The first major scandal dealt with speculation in the gold market. Jay Gould and James Fisk attempted to corner the market. They drove up the price of gold but Grant found out and quickly had the Treasury add gold to the economy. This in turn resulted in the lowering of gold prices on Friday, September 24, 1869 which adversely affected all those who had bought gold.

Someone tried to shoot/assassinate President Jackson.  The gun didn't go off and President Jackson chased the guy down and beat him with his cane

I love Woodward as an author.  I read "Plan of Attack a couple of years ago.  Good book and it made me respect Colin Powell a lot more than I did

President Theodore Roosevelt invited Booker T Washington to have dinner with him at the White House after their meeting ran late. He was the first black man to be a guest of the President and that did'nt go to well with constituents.  Just heard about this on Al Sharpton's show last week.

I'd say the "Birther" issue with the current president we now have!  LOL!

JFK had many scandals and one has turned into a murder mystery.  Her name was Mary Pinchot Meyer.  I think the CIA is linked in this one.
