Tour of DC scandals proving popular

Washingtonians love scandals.

Since starting its “Scandals Tour” less than two weeks ago, tour company D.C. Walkabout says its jaunt down memory lane of the District’s dirtiest little secrets is selling pretty well.

The outing, which runs from the White House to the Capitol, costs $15 a person and manages to squeeze in as many as 26 political scandals in two and a half hours.

When it comes to scandalous events, some of the fan favorites so far on the adults-only tour include the infamous 1990 hotel drug bust of former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry (D) and the sexting scandal that forced ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) to resign last year.

Owner Sean Williams tells us in an email, “I guess you could say it is an overarching look at the devious and deceiving actions of men in power throughout American history. Or even that it is nothing more than a good old-fashioned love story, but of powerful men who are in love with … themselves.”

A disclaimer on D.C. Walkabout’s website says the tour is “Rated R (for ridiculous).”
