Scandal: A scandal can be broadly defined as an accusation or accusations that receive wide exposure. Generally there is a negative effect on the credibility of the person or organisation involved. Society is scandalised when it is made aware of blatant breaches of moral norms or legal requirements. In contemporary times, exposure is often made by mass media. Such breaches have typically erupted from greed, lust or the abuse of power. Scandals may be regarded as political, sexual, moral, literary or artistic but often spread from one realm into another. The basis of a scandal may be factual or false, or a combination of both.

My opponent has not made any statements towards such actions being "useful", so i will have to try to start the argument, with not knowing any examples of "useful" ness, towards any politic.

In most scandals, whether it's for greed,power, or enjoyment/fulfillment, the people have to find ways to cover their tracks, to say. They are not capable of wining, or receiving the object, they find ways to cheat, or brake the very Laws they preach to their people, in order to get the prize, without working for the right to host it. There are Scandals that people have gotten away with (ex Bush election in Miami) but there are several that don't, and then the name of the person(s) are now ruin, and have little chance to do anything in their life because of their sinister actions. It is an act against everything Justice exclaims, and is an lie to the people, and hurts everyone, because these so called politics, are selfish, and in the end get them nowhere, so please tell me, how is committing crimes, useful in long ran, to anyone?

My opponent has fail to supply any evidence with how scandals can be benifical to really anyone. All he has done is copy and pasted a definition of Scandal. I rest my case, and believe my aguement logical and reasonable.
