The answer to my last journal entry was the 29th President of the United States Warren G. Harding. His cabinet, known as the Ohio Gang, was widely perceived to be corrupt, mostly due to involvement in the Teapot Dome Scandal. Harding was an isolationist and some scholars believe that the tariffs enacted under his administration prevented worldwide economic recovery from WWI and led to the Great Depression. Many consider him to have been the worst American President ever.

I'll have to go back to my original source and recheck the arms agreement. I was copying facts from it and I think it may have not been clear about events between administrations.
