          Not only did two Shakespearean thespians duke it out, but their rivalry prompted a great New York riot that killed at least 25 people.

            11. Mayor Rob Ford vs the Toronto Star



            Originally posted by Wikipedia
            The Toronto Star and Ford began an ongoing dispute. Several columnists regularly wrote critical articles of Ford. In response, Ford refused to meet with Star reporters and in December 2011, the Star filed a complaint with the City of Toronto's integrity commissioner.

            In May 2012, when the Toronto Star was investigating a potential purchase of public lands bordering his home, Star reporter Daniel Dale and Ford had an incident. According to Ford, at 7:30 pm, a neighbour told him that someone was taking pictures of his home while standing on a cinder block on public property behind his house, while the property in question is on the side of his house. Ford confronted the reporter and yelled at him. According to Dale, he was "cornered like a rat" by Ford, yelled for help, repeatedly asked Ford not to punch him, dropped his cell phone and digital recorder and ran, scared of Ford. The next day, on Talk Radio 640, Ford stated that he would no longer meet with any City Hall reporters if Dale were present. No charges were laid in the incident.

                  1. Roscoe Conkling



                  Not only did he get Chet Arthur into the Oval Office, but his bit of perjury got the Supreme Court to recognize joint-stock corporations as "persons' with respect to the XIV Amendment.

                                6. Edward J Flynn



                                Upon assuming the presidency, Franklin D Roosevelt fed Federal Depression-era aid to New York not through the traditional Democratic club at Tammany Hall, but through Ed Flynn's Bronx machine instead. Flynn was so close to FDR that the President requested that Flynn join him at Yalta -- yet Flynn was cagey enough to generally decline to have his photo taken with FDR. The phrase "in like Flynn" comes from the power of Flynn's backing: with his endorsement, a candidate could not loose an election.
