How many political scandals start with a tiger suit? There’s at least one: The one that bagged Oregon Democrat David Wu, who until recently represented the state’s first Congressional district. The photo of him dressed in this tiger suit was sent to a staffer in November 2010, shortly after his re-election. The photo went viral, and “David Wu tiger” became the most popular Google search term for the congressman. Despite a tradition of embarrassing photos taking down other members of Congress (hello, Weiner!), Wu managed to weather that storm, but another one was on the horizon. The Oregonian later reported that an 18-year-old woman left a distraught voicemail for Wu, accusing him of an “aggressive” sexual encounter. While Wu insisted he did “nothing illegal” and he would be “vindicated,” he resigned shortly after and is being urged to seek treatment. No word on what happened to the tiger costume.
