Comments: For better or worse, The President’s Daughter marked the first time that a presidential mistress published her story for the public. Nan Britton was the mistress of President Warren G. Harding. With his untimely death in 1923, he was unable to personally confirm or deny the scandal, but his family fought back against it for years. In 2015, her claim was confirmed using DNA testing. Britton died in 1991.While popular during his presidency, the administration of Warren G. Harding was plagued with scandal. This affair (amongst others) only further ruined the reputation of the 29th President of the United States.
