It's been core to the Golden Dukes franchise since the beginning that some of the best insight into judging the finer points of scandal and public corruption comes from those who know of what they speak. And for those who aren't familiar with the Golden Dukes, the Dukes are our annual award show to honor the great moments in scandal, public corruption, betrayals of the public trust and more.
That's why John Dean is one of the Dukes' founding judges.
And this year we welcome none other than Jack Abramoff.
Yes, truly an iconic figure in the scandal lore of the early 21st century. But now he's done his time. He's out. And he's ready to help judge which are the best scandals of this last year.
