WASHINGTON - It's October,
days before the presidential election,
and the scrappy challenger ratchets up
hi§ attack on the incumbent's ethics,
actusing him of misdeeds, political
Wars and a coverup "significantly
er" than even Watergate itself.
- Bob Dole in 1996? No, it was the
Clinton-Gore campaign four years ago,
mounting a month-long assault on what it
described as a pattern of secrecy, obstruc-
tion of justice and dirty tricks by the
qdniinistration of President Bush.
Now, President Clinton is the light-
ning rod for character issues, as
Republicans have tried to exploit
Whitewater and several other investiga-
ns that have dogged his administra-
ion. Dole has promised a campaign
finale that will focus intently on the
president's public conduct.
Recent American political history has
plenty of ethical lows, ranging from
'President Nixon with Watergate and
Nice President Spiro Agnew to the
Reagan-Bush years with their record-
setting number of forced resignations
,and the Iran-Contra scandal.
*One Dole attack ad that the campaign
,ordered pulled before it aired - but
The Michigan Daily - Monday, October 21, 1996-- 7A
ues re-surface in '96
which ran once on CNN - asserted
that Clinton had the worst ethics record
"in over two decades."
In San Diego, the site of their second
and final debate, Dole said, "We have
seen more than 30 Clinton officials
investigated, fired or forced to resign
due to ethical improprieties. We have
seen four independent counsels at work,
three investigating members of the
Cabinet and one looking at the presi-
After citing controversies surround-
ing the handling of sensitive FBI files,
the White House travel-office firings
and improper contributions to the
Democratic National Committee, Dole
added, "I remember all the criticism in
the Reagan and Bush days ... by some
of the very people now who are being
self-righteous. .:. No administration has
shown more arrogance. But few have
displayed more ethical failures."
Watergate remains the granddaddy of
them all, the scandal by which all others
leading -to the Oval Office are judged.
In the aftermath of the June 16, 1972,
break-in at Democratic headquarters,
30 Nixon administration officials, cam-
paign officers and financial contribu-
tors pleaded or were found guilty of
breaking the law.
Of those, 19 of the president's aides
went to jail, serving sentences of one to
52 months. Nixon received an uncondi-
tional presidential pardon one month
after he left office.
"On a one-to-10 scale, Watergate was
a 10, and everything else is a four," said
J. Brad Coker, who runs the Maryland-
based Mason-Dixon Political Media
Research polling firm. "Since
Watergate, this country has had
wannabe scandals that never amounted
to much. Everything has a "-gate'
behind it to the point where everybody's
In President Carter's single term,
budget director Bert Lance and brother
Billy Carter were major headaches, and
the White House had to contend with
allegations that some senior staff used
In Ronald Reagan's eight years in
office, more than 100 officials were
accused of illegal or unethical conduct,
and several senior officials - including
secretaries of interior, labor and defense
- were indicted or convicted. Both of
Reagan's attorneys general battled alle-
gations of ethical violations. Nine inde-
pendent counsels conducted inquiries.

the many facets of a large university,
and that she "has a great spirit."
Goldstein said Christ is "a quick

needed to meet her.
"There are a lot of people who
answer to her," Goldstein said. "I never
felt that if I had a problem or an issue, I
couldn't get to her."
He also said Christ frequently teach-
