Suzanne Garment, author of Scandal: The Culture of Mistrust in American Politics, discussed the way political scandals have reshaped U.S. history and have influenced the way Americans vote and think about public policy. Her book cites over eighty cases of misconduct occurring within both political parties. She examines what she terms is the “criminalization of politics” and the roles played by the White House, Congress, the courts, and the press. A former Washington correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, Ms. Garment believes that the increased coverage of scandals since Watergate has strengthened the influence of the media while reducing the power of government. close
