Golden Dukes Announced!!!

December 30, 2011 7:23 a.m.

Today’s the day. Like every year for the last 5 years, today we’re announcing the winners of this year’s Golden Duke Awards. The Dukes are our annual awards program honoring great feats in public corruption, scandal and all betrayals of the public trust. You nominated the nominees for this year’s Dukes. And our judges (Jack Abramoff, Gene Weingarten, Hendrik Hertzberg, Dahlia Lithwick, Susie Bright and Twitter phenom @PourMeCoffee) have been toiling away for the last week separating from merely scandalous from the truly scrumptiously awful to bring you this year’s winners.

So who won this year for Best Scandal — General Interest? or Meritorious Achievement in the Crazy? The announcement is only hours away? Come back later this afternoon to hear the ugly truth!
