Jerry Springer

It may be hard to believe that the “The Jerry Springer Show” host was once in politics but then again, his political career did include a scandal worthy of his show. In 1971, he was elected to the Cincinnati city council but was forced to resign three years later after he admitted to hiring a prostitute. Then he won back his seat in 1975 because he had been honest about the entire situation and went on to serve as mayor in 1977. Later, Springer failed to win the Democratic party’s nomination for governor of Ohio and due to his hit show, he could not run for the United States Senate in 2003.
