#2, Bill Clinton (Jones scandal)
May 6, 1992
Bill Clinton hits our list three times. By our methodology, the Paula Jones scandal rated the worst: Unlike Gennifer Flowers or Monica Lewinsky, Clinton's alleged advances on Jones, when he was governor of Arkansas and she was working for the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission, were not consensual. Jones sued Clinton in 1994, setting up a historic case. The Supreme Court ruled that sitting presidents could not wait until the end of their term to respond to litigation regarding their private actions. And it was Clinton's testimony related to Jones that set up his Lewinsky-driven impeachment. He later settled with Jones for $850,000.
