Nature:
Political scandal is an act or opinion that transgresses the behaviour standards expected of a politician or political system. Political scandals may involve a crime but to be a scandal it only has to be a serious affront of public morality. A politician exposed as having a mistress would be seen as scandalous in one nation and ignored in another.
