If you saw a child getting raped, what would you do? Mike McQueary had that very decision to make on March 1, 2002. He saw a 10-year-old boy getting raped in a locker room shower by, for all intents and purposes, his boss, Jerry Sandusky.
As we try to process all the sordid and unbelievable details of the Jerry Sandusky child sex scandal, it's hard not to wonder what his wife, Dottie, must be going through right now. I can only imagine she is as horrified and shocked as the rest of the world, as most any wife would be. But I also wonder if she is now looking back on the past 15 years and questioning how she couldn't have seen the clues more clearly.
Regardless of what side of the political spectrum they fall on, it seems that men in powerful positions just can't keep it in their pants. The latest politician to fall under scrutiny is businessman-turned-Republican presidential hopeful, Herman Cain.
Halloween is about turning heads and causing a ruckus. You and your trick-or-treating partner will be the most controversial couple at the party if you decide to pay homage to one of the biggest sex scandals of the year.
Nafissatou Diallo, or "Nafi," the 32-year-old black domestic who dared to accuse one of the most powerful men in the world of rape, has unexpectedly stepped forward to prove to us that her allegations against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, former head of the International Monetary Fund, are true. And further, that she is not guilty of the salacious accusations that have been made against her in the press since she accused Strauss-Kahn of rape two months ago.
Nafissatou Diallo claimed one of the world's most powerful men tried to rape her— and then found herself accused. In an exclusive interview in this week's Newsweek, Diallo tells vivid, gripping details of Dominique Strauss-Kahn's alleged attack, and rejects accusations of being a sex worker.
As ridiculous as the numerous recent sex scandals are, we can hope there are also some big lessons that have come out of them—not only for the offenders themselves but for the general public as well. In fact, The Frisky lists out a whopping 45 things they've learned from a few recent male adulterers (Weiner, Schwarzenegger, Woods, James, Spitzer and Edwards). The list includes lessons about how to "properly" sext like: make sure to keep your face outside the shot when taking naughty pics and, of course, always use correct grammar (you don't want to seem like a sleaze and an idiot). Another gem is: being involved in a major sex scandal can land you a gig on CNN and, perhaps, even an advice column. However, the one lesson I definitely can't agree with is, "That Arnold's last name isn’t actually impossible to spell." I promise you, I will never get it down.
Weiner sent sexy texts and lied to his constituents, but does this warrant resignation? Take our poll.

Well, The Frisky spells—or counts—it out for us with a scorecard, listing 10 Democrats and 10 Republicans involved in some of the biggest, most recent sex scandals.
Leave it to The Daily Beast to crunch the numbers on something as salacious as political scandals. We're sure they had a ball doing hardcore data analysis on the last 20 years of cigars, wide stances and love children with housekeepers. Of course, at the end of the day, what we really want to know is which party has been involved in more sex scandals (we'll spoil it for you: the Republicans). We won't spoil the rest of the lurid details.
Politicians are no strangers to scandal, but thanks to the popularity of social networking and sexting, we've got a whole new branch of governmental wrongdoing to deal with. Our prime suspect: Congressman Anthony Weiner.
If you're like most of us, you're having a hard time making sense of the relationship between John Edwards and Rielle Hunter. And, more importantly, you're not sure if you want to understand it. If the latest buzz can be believed, Rielle has finally given up on her love...if there was even anything left to give up on.
In light of the accusations against IMF's former chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, we're asking what you would do if your spouse were accused of a sex crime.
When it came to celebrity scandals, 2010 had its fair share of zingers. From adulterous golfers to adulterous soccer players to adulterous motorcycle builders ... well, a lot of famous people cheated. But it wasn't all sordid hookups, secret babies and embarrassing fake-relationship publicity stunts. There was also the creepiest Bachelor ever! Join us as we count up the 20 most scandalous celebrity love and sex stories of 2010.
