Phillip Payne, author of Dead Last: The Public Memory of Warren G. Harding’s Scandalous Legacy, talked about the 29th President.

Warren G. Harding is consistently listed at the bottom of rankings of America’s best presidents. Harding’s poor showings in rankings are usually associated with administrative and personal scandals. After Harding’s death in office the Teapot Dome scandal came to light, and a member of Harding’s cabinet in charge of the Veterans Bureau had also embezzled millions of dollars intended for veterans. Harding’s personal scandals included a claim by Nan Britton that he had fathered her illegitimate child. close
