Yes, "Watergate" was the original model.
Back in Reagan's time, there was a scandal involving dealings with Iran and the "Contras" in the Honduras. The media had trouble with this one, because "Irangate" and "Hondurasgate" were not easy to pronounce. They finally settled for "Contragate".



It was always "the Iran-Contra Affair" from what I remember.
But then again, even those most closely associated with it, didn't seem to be able to remember much, especially Reagan.

It is because the Clintons have been busy. Very very busy.

Why do we keep naming conspiracies gate?

Is adding gate to the end of a word like the official conspiracy tag?


The collective consciousness wants to remind us about the most important conspiracy theory...STARGATE

The original "gate" scandal got its name from the Watergate Hotel, where two politically motivated burglaries took place in 1972. The Watergate scandal ultimately led to the resignation of U.S. President Richard Nixon on August 9, 1974.



... Today, though, it is mostly used hyperbolically.




Now there's a term I don't often see!
