Teapot Dome Scandal by Laton McCartney
Book DescriptionIn this amazing and at times ribald story, Laton McCartney tells how Big Oil handpicked Warren G. Harding, an obscure Ohio senator, to serve as our twenty-third president. Harding and his oil cabinet made it possible for cronies to secure vast fuel reserves that had been set aside for use by the U.S. Navy. In exchange, the oilmen paid off senior government officials, bribed newspaper publishers, and covered the GOP campaign debt. When news of the scandal finally emerged, the consequences were disastrous. Drawing on contemporary records newly made available to McCartney, "The Teapot Dome Scandal" reveals a shocking, revelatory picture of just how far-reaching the affair was, how high the stakes, and how powerful the conspirators all told in a dazzling narrative style."
