The administration of Warren G. Harding, the 29th US president, was one of the most corrupt ever. It included the infamous Teapot Dome bribery scandal. Harding was a newspaper publisher whom one admirer promoted for the nomination because 'he looked like a president.' Harding died of a heart attack in office in 1923. Rumors at the time claimed he had either killed himself or was poisoned by his wife.
