4. Mel Reynolds
As we mentioned before there are many more powerful figures just like Dennis Hastert, who take advantage of their status and believe the world is their own playground.
A congressman with a promising political career who raised himself out of poverty and low social background, only to fall from its grace.
In 1994, a staffer from his campaign accused him of having inappropriate calls when she was only 16 years old.
At first, Reynolds maintained that he was innocent, but later some tapes proved that the woman was telling the truth. He was charged with sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual abuse and child pornography.
