Wilbur Mills was the long-time Speaker of the House, a Democrat from Arkansas (YES! Arkansas!). He had an affair with exotic dancer Fanny Foxe, "The Argentine Firecracker". Everything surfaced when the capitol police found them splashing in the reflecting pool of the Washington monument in the wee hours. Mills was drunk at the time. While his office denied that he had a drinking problem, Jack Anderson reported that if his staff said, "He can't speak with you now, he's on the floor", it was never clear if Mills was on the floor of the House or the floor of his office. In the next election after the scandal, Mills' had a challenger, who used the slogan, "If you like liquor, sex and thrills, cast your vote for Wilbur Mills". Mills won.
