The President’s Other Child

Although we all know President Grant is sleeping with Olivia, season one revealed that Grant impregnated another mistress. When Grover Cleveland ran for president in 1884, he discovered that he fathered an illegitimate child. The scandal ignited the song, “Ma, Ma, where's my Pa? Gone to the White House, ha, ha, ha," that followed Cleveland all the way into the White House.
