He womanized incessently and his wife stood by him the whole time… until he got rid of her.– He also plagarized many of his famous quotes.

I don’t emulate him as a role model – in fact the only person that I couldn’t find some fault with is Jesus Christ. Everyone has faults. Nevertheless, Franklin contributed some good things.
