Come Undone: A History Of Politicians Tainted By Prostitution Scandals

JOHN PROFUMO (CONSERVATIVE SECRETARY OF THE STATE OF WAR, ENGLAND)
In 1963, Profumo, who was the Sectary of State for War in British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan’s administration, got himself into some real James Bond-type shit when he was outed for having an affair with call girl Christine Keeler, who was also having an affair with a Russian spy and a drug dealer. At first Profumo denied it, and even lied to the House of Commons, but eventually he was forced to resign. A couple of months later, Macmillian resigned as well, due to heath issues (sure). All this raises the question: Was that vagina really worth it? We wish we knew to say.
