What was the name given to associates and friends of U.S. President Warren G. Harding (1865-1923), who received public office during his administration and infamously sought to enrich themselves through their positions?

Answer: The Ohio gang. While Harding was largely personally honest, though naive, his associates were embroiled in a variety of financial scandals, most infamously the Teaport Dome Scandal (1921-1922).
