5 Most Shockingly Unpleasant Politicians

5. Spiro Agnew

When you hear the name Richard Nixon, you immediately think…..Watergate, bombing of Cambodia and other not-so-pleasant things. Although Nixon was an unpleasant individual, he pales in comparison to his second in command, Vice-President Spiro Agnew. Agnew took the idea of political corruption to a whole new level. During his fifth year in office, Agnew was investigated for taking bribes totaling more than $200,000 while he was holding office as Baltimore County Executive, Governor of Maryland, and Vice President of the United States. That’s $200,000 dollars, in 1973, being worth a lot more today. Spiro Agnew was not just known for his bribery scandals and his hate filled speeches against his political opponents, he also holds the ignominy of being the only Vice President to resign due to corruption charges.
