Skeleton Closet – Carole Moseley-Braun, The Dark Side

She won a Senate seat in a major upset, capitalizing on anger over the Anita Hill hearings, and proceeded to line her pockets with campaign funds, cover up sexual harassment charges against her boyfriend/campaign manager (while paying him $15,000 a month out of campaign funds), and support an infamous Nigerian dictator even as he was executing dissidents like renowned playwright Ken Saro-Wiwa. After denying reports that the Democratic party offered to pay off her campaign debt if she would quit when her term expired in 1998, she chewed through staff like like a puppy in a room of slippers, and lost her re-election to an unknown amidst widespread charges of improprieties.

If this doesn’t qualify her to lead Chicago, what does?
