Title: In US crime novels I read, one phrase keeps cropping up. Can you explain it?

And the mysterious phrase is.... "The Teapot Dome Scandal". 

What is or was The Teapot Dome Scandal?  What was it all about?  And why is it still important enough to be constantly remembered in detective novels?

I'll be grateful for any answer you can give.
