Democratic Montana Senator Burton K. Wheeler was on the investigating committee and assumed the role of prosecutor when hearings began on March 12, Caskey, to accept payoffs from alcohol bootleggers to secure either immunity from prosecution or the release of liquor from government warehouses.
Coolidge requested Daugherty's resignation when the Attorney General indicated that he would not allow Wheeler's committee access to Justice Department records, and Daugherty complied on March 28, Smith and Miller received a payoff of almost half a million dollars for getting a German-owned firm, the American Metal Company, released to new U.
Records relating to that account were destroyed by Daugherty and his brother. Miller and Daugherty were indicted for defrauding the government.
The first trial, in September , resulted in a hung jury ; at the second, early in , Miller was convicted and served prison time, but the jury again hung as to Daugherty.
Though charges against Daugherty were then dropped, and he was never convicted of any offense, his refusal to take the stand in his own defense devastated what was left of his reputation.
The former Attorney General remained defiant, blaming his troubles on his enemies in the labor movement and on the Communists, and wrote that he had "done nothing that prevents my looking the whole world in the face".
Charles R. Forbes , the energetic director of the Veterans' Bureau, sought to consolidate control of veterans' hospitals and their construction in his bureau.
At the start of Harding's presidency, this power was vested in the Treasury Department. The politically-powerful American Legion backed Forbes and denigrated those who opposed him, like Secretary Mellon, and in April , Harding agreed to transfer control to the Veterans' Bureau.
Louis, which wanted to construct the hospitals. The two men became close, and Mortimer paid for Forbes' travels through the West, looking at potential hospital sites for the wounded World War I veterans.
Forbes was also friendly with Charles F. Some of the money went to the bureau's chief counsel, Charles F. Intent on making more money, Forbes in November began selling valuable hospital supplies under his control in large warehouses at the Perryville Depot in Maryland.
The check on Forbes' authority at Perryville was Dr. Sawyer, Harding's physician and chairman of the Federal Hospitalization Board.
Harding did not want an open scandal and allowed Forbes to flee to Europe, from where he resigned on February 15, In spite of Harding's efforts, gossip about Forbes' activities resulted in the Senate ordering an investigation two weeks later,  and in mid-March, Cramer committed suicide.
Mortimer was willing to tell all, as Forbes had had an affair with his wife which also broke up the Forbes' marriage. The construction executive was the star witness at the hearings in late , after Harding's death.
Forbes returned from Europe to testify, but convinced few, and in , he and John W. Thompson, of Thompson—Black, were tried in Chicago for conspiracy to defraud the government.
Both were convicted and sentenced to two years in prison. Forbes began to serve his sentence in ; Thompson, who had a bad heart, died that year before commencing his.
Harding had an extramarital affair with Carrie Fulton Phillips of Marion, which lasted about 15 years before ending in Letters from Harding to Phillips were discovered by Harding biographer Francis Russell in the possession of Marion attorney Donald Williamson while Russell was researching his book in Before that, the affair was not generally known.
Williamson donated the letters to the Ohio Historical Society. Some there wanted the letters destroyed to preserve what remained of Harding's reputation.
A lawsuit ensued, with Harding's heirs claiming copyright over the letters. The case was ultimately settled in , with the letters donated to the Library of Congress.
They were sealed until , but before their opening, historians used copies at Case Western Reserve University and in Russell's papers at the University of Wyoming.
Coffey in his review of Harding biographies criticizes him for "obsess[ing] over Harding's sex life".
The allegations of Harding's other known mistress, Nan Britton , long remained uncertain. The book, which was dedicated to "all unwedded mothers" and "their innocent children whose fathers are usually not known to the world", was sold, like pornography, door-to-door, wrapped in brown paper.
Harding's biographers, writing while Britton's allegations remained uncertain, differed on their truth; Russell believed them unquestioningly  while Dean, having reviewed Britton's papers at UCLA , regarded them as unproven.
Upon his death, Harding was deeply mourned. He was called a man of peace in many European newspapers; American journalists praised him lavishly, with some describing him as having given his life for his country.
His associates were stunned by his demise; Daugherty wrote, "I can hardly write about it or allow myself to think about it yet.
Harding, Our After-War President Works written in the late s helped shape Harding's historical reputation: Masks in a Pageant , by William Allen White , mocked and dismissed Harding, as did Samuel Hopkins Adams ' fictionalized account of the Harding administration, Revelry.
President Coolidge, not wishing to be further associated with his predecessor, refused to dedicate the Harding Tomb. Hoover, Coolidge's successor, was similarly reluctant, but with Coolidge in attendance presided over the dedication in By that time, with the Great Depression in full swing, Hoover was nearly as discredited as Harding.
Harding in which he called his subject "an amiable, well-meaning third-rate Mr. Babbitt , with the equipment of a small-town semi-educated journalist It could not work.
It did not work. Today there is considerable evidence refuting their portrayals of Harding. Yet the myth has persisted. The opening of Harding's papers for research in sparked a small spate of biographies, of which the most controversial was Russell's The Shadow of Blooming Grove , which concluded that the rumors of black ancestry the "shadow" of the title deeply affected Harding in his formative years, causing both Harding's conservatism and his desire to get along with everyone.
Coffey faults Russell's methods, and deems the biography "largely critical, though not entirely unsympathetic. Trani and Wilson faulted Murray for "a tendency to go overboard" in trying to connect Harding with the successful policies of cabinet officers, and for asserting, without sufficient evidence, that a new, more assertive Harding had emerged by Later decades saw revisionist books published on Harding.
Robert Ferrell 's The Strange Deaths of President Harding , according to Coffey, "spends almost the entire work challenging every story about Harding and concludes that almost everything that is read and taught about his subject is wrong.
Schlesinger Jr. Harding has traditionally been ranked as one of the worst presidents. Schlesinger Sr. In concrete accomplishments, his administration was superior to a sizable portion of those in the nation's history.
Trani faults Harding's own lack of depth and decisiveness as bringing about his tarnished legacy. In the American system, there is no such thing as an innocent bystander in the White House.
If Harding can rightly claim the achievements of a Hughes in State or a Hoover in Commerce, he must also shoulder responsibility for a Daugherty in Justice and a Fall in Interior.
Especially must he bear the onus of his lack of punitive action against such men as Forbes and Smith. By his inaction, he forfeited whatever chance he had to maintain the integrity of his position and salvage a favorable image for himself and his administration.
As it was, the subsequent popular and scholarly negative verdict was inevitable, if not wholly deserved. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

According to the story, the socialite Louise Cromwell Brooks first wife of General Douglas MacArthur was a guest, and Harding played a game of "cold hand" with her -- just a game of high-card -- saying that whoever won could name the stakes.
When Brooks won she chose the White House china as her prize, and Harding had it delivered to her the next day. While Harding's successor Calvin Coolidge enjoyed poker, next-in-line Herbert Hoover was less of a fan.
Hoover had been part of Harding's cabinet as Secretary of Commerce , but declined games with the president, later writing that while he didn't mind poker, "it irked me to see it in the White House.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt followed Hoover as the nation's 32nd president, bringing back the poker-playing tradition with low-stakes games several times a week, often nickel-ante stud.
Following the footsteps of his fifth cousin Theodore, FDR likewise employed a poker metaphor to describe his "New Deal" series of programs aimed at fostering recovery from the Depression.
FDR hosted games on the final night of each Congressional session, and whoever led when the session adjourned was declared the winner. Once FDR was down when the call came, but didn't let on to the others the session was over.
Hours later he was ahead, then had a phone brought to him and reported the session had ended, making him the winner.
