Grant was not directly involved in any the scandals that racked his administration. However, he was officially in charge and so he had the ultimate responsibility for everything that went on. One can argue that he should have been more careful in his supervision , seen what was going on and prevented it or stopped it quickly.
I Think you"ve got your grammar wrong- War Hero is a noun clause. The only one I can think of may have been president Grant, whose administration was ridden with scandals such as the Tweed Ring. I cannot help but think you may have been thinking of Colonel Charles Lindbergh. Lindbergh, the great aviator, was not strictly speaking a (war Hero) the Spirit of St. Louis was not an Air Force craft-no Stars and bars…
The first big scandal was the Black Friday Gold Panic of 1869 in which Jay Gould and James Fisk tried to corner the gold market and manipulate the price of gold to their benefit and the ruination of the national economy. Abel Corbin who was married to the sister of Mrs. Grant was involved and he may have "invested" some money from Mrs. Grant in the complicated scheme. Grant met Gould and Fisk at Corbin's…

If you are asking whether President Obama personally was involved in any scandals, thus far the answer is "no." There are internet rumors about various things (in fairness, we saw similar rumors during the Bush years), but these have all been proven false. But if you are asking whether there were scandals that involved people in his administration or people who worked with his office (another problem that has affected several presidents in recent times)…
I suppose the answer may depend on how you define corruption. Nixon was the only one who accepted a pardon for illegal actions but his alleged crimes did not involve misuse of money which is what one usually means by corruption. The worst scandals occurred during the Grant and Harding administrations but the President was not personally implicated .
president grant was a much better general than president,that said he was rocked by three scandals,the jay gould 1869 scandal,credit mobilier 1872 scandal,the whiskey ring 1879 scandal.also mr.grant did not run for a third term mainly due to a deep economic depression of 1873,he failed to run in 1876.others may improve on this answer but it's a good start.
Grant was elected President two times. He remained popular in spite of the scandals in his cabinet. People saw him as an honest man and the people in the North remained grateful for his part in ending the Civil War. When he died, several places wanted to be the site of his tomb. He was given an elaborate funeral and his tomb is magnificent.
He was taken advantage of, in his role as President. He was made Director of a bank that crashed, owing to fraudulent dealings (not involving him), and he was ruined. This probably brought on the throat-cancer that killed him, and that was why he had reluctantly agreed to write his memoirs, to give his family something to live on after his death.
