Busted by ones own hubris

"When reporters in Washington had asked Hart about rumours that he was
seeing women other than his wife, he had denied it, and invited the

press to follow him if they had any doubts. Predictably, they took up
the challenge, and within days the Miami Herald had published a story
about Hart spending a night on a sailboat with a young woman, Donna

Rice, followed by pictures in a supermarket tabloid of Hart and Rice
on the boat, named Monkey Business"

– p177 "A Woman In Charge" by Carl Bernstein
