No matter what time of year it is, (be it an American election or otherwise) political sex scandals span both the Democratic and Republican parties. From Political Johns to lowly adulterers, the two are pretty even in terms of sex scandals since 1976. Democrat scandals have edged ahead in recent years though! This is a politician list of sex scandals. For the other side of political sex scandals see the Republican list.
Due to the 2017 Weinstein effect, many Democrats accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault have been added to the list, including Senator Al Franken, former California State Assembly member Raul Bocanegra, and former San Diego mayor Bob Filner.
This list answers the question what was the worst Democrat sex scandal? Was it John Edwards? Was it Gary Hart? Take a look and see what Democratic politicians got into a heap of trouble because they let sex in the way of their political aspirations.
