A boxing gym in Louisville has changed its name to honor Muhammad Ali. The gym, where a then 12-year-old Cassius Clay learned how to box after having his bike stolen, had its name changed by Spalding. The gym hosts the training room and fitness center for the Spalding University men’s and women’s basketball teams and volleyball team.
In the building where @SU_GoldenEagles teams now compete, Muhammad Ali first learned to box. A red Schwinn bicycle hangs in homage to the boxing legend on the newly renamed Columbia Gym: https://t.co/Hbv1gF7yHJ pic.twitter.com/tdcgD9rSCA

If there’s one thing the news cycle can always depend on to draw in readers, it’s a good old-fashioned American sex scandal. Hard-hitting news authorities like People and Vanity Fair are typically unstoppable forces in finding out who is having sex with who in the world of celebrities, but once in a while a politician will risk it all with an intern or something, and then suddenly sex scandals become important, respected pieces of journalism worthy of coverage by every major news outlet. Throughout the course of American History, literally hundreds of politicians have welshed on their own alleged belief systems and embarrassed themselves in the national spotlight, particularly when it comes to sex. Republicans and Democrats alike are equally as guilty as one another in this respect. Here’s a look back at some of the wildest (and weirdest) political sex scandals to date.
