    A Little About Harding and his Administration
    Warren Gamaliel Harding was born November 2, 1865 in the small town Corsica, (now Blooming Grove) Ohio. His father, George, and mother, Pheobe Dickerson, raised him as a typical baptist farm boy pushed by work. Harding was a newspaper publisher for the Marion Star . And at the young age of 15, he attended Ohio Central College and got his degree in 1882. He tried being a teacher and a insurance salesman until he found his calling of being a government official. Most didnt think of him as an "intellectual giant" when in reality, behind his lazy, humorous behavior he had poltical smarts. He became a member of the Ohio State Senate in 1900-1904, the Lieutenant-Governor of Ohio in 1904-1906 and the United States Senator in 1915-1921. Harding was nominated to run for president for the Repulibcan Party as the dark horse candidate. His opponent was Calvin Coolidge. At the age of 56, Harding served one term as president of the United States and won easily with 61% of the vote. Harding passed away before his scandels affected his presidency. Unlike President Wilson, Harding did not support America joining the League of Nations. His opposition meant that America did not join at all and it failed without America's participation. Even though America did not ratify the Treaty of Paris ending World War I. In 1921-22, America agreed to a limit of arms to a set ratio between Great Britain, the U.S., Japan, France, and Italy. America entered pacts to respect the property of Great Britain, France, and Japan and to preserve the Open Door Policy in China. During Harding's time, he also spoke out on civil rights and pardoned Socialist Eugene V. Debs who had been convicted of anti-war demonstrations during World War I. On August 2, 1923, Harding died of a heart attack.
    ...
    Other Scandals
    The Veterans' Bureau was a pretty huge scandal. Colonel Charles R. Forbes was the head of the Veterans' Bureau. It was later found that Forbes was invloved in corrupt arrangements with a number of people, particularly with those involved in hospitals, and sold government property at a lesser value. In 1923, Forbes resigned his position and ran to Europe. A Senate investigation in 1924 found that Forbes had gained more than $200 million from the government. He was indicted for bribery and corruption, and was brought back for trial in 1925. Another scandal was the Justice Department Scandal. Daugherty was in Harding's cabinet and was suspected of profiting from the sale of government alcohol supplies, failing to enforce prohibition laws, and the selling of pardons. Daugherty was dismissed by Calvin Coolidge in March of 1924 The new president showed little interest in the people of the Harding scandals, but made certain that his cabinet did everything they could to avoid similar situations. Harding was involved in many other scandals making his presidency a joke.

    Historical Significance
    The Ohio Gang was important because it led to the discovery of the corruption of the government. It revealed how easy it was to get what you wanted when you were the president. It showed the American public what happened behind closed doors. This helped citizens realize changes had to be made. Harding's admininstration and scandals helped everyone come to the conclusion that you had to be picky when it came to picking the President of the United States, and America thought that Calvin Coolidge best fit that role.
