Woodrow Wilson’s Scandalous Engagement
Sex has long played a role in the world of presidential sex scandals. Woodrow Wilson, famed for his role in the progressive movement and World War I, was not without scandal. His sin, however, was not sex per se but simply an engagement. His first wife, Ellen Louise Axson, died in August of 1914. The next spring Wilson met Edith Galt and by May they were engaged. This was seen as scandalous at the time; rumors began to fly about the President including that he had even murdered his first wife in order to marry Galt (although they had not met until after Ellen had died). http://www.huntingtontheatre.org/
If this happened today, do you think it would even been an issue? What say you?
