(Studio) Watergate scandal being compared to previous scandals such as corruption in Grant administration, spoils system of Andrew Jackson, and Teapot Dome in Harding administration Teapot Dome case reviewed. Truman administration tainted by Brigadier General Harry H. Vaughan's activities. Eisenhower administration scarred by Sherman Adams incident. While many feel Watergate scandal is not as serious as previous incidents, others feel right of nation to freely choose President after fair campaign has been denied. When White House power used to increase its own power, path towards dictatorship has been chosen.
