Watergate is a hotel.

All subsequent scandals are punning on its name.

Interesting question.

They choose GATE because it symbolises the scandal being disclosed to the public i.e. once the "gates" are open, the floodwaters are released

yes, Watergate was the first muth-uh of all scandals,
that took down President Nixon.

it's called Watergate because the Democratic Party offices
that "the three stooges" broke into were located in the
Watergate Office Complex in Washington D.C., thus,
"Watergate".

and every big scandal in the federal government since
then has been labeled "----gate"

walla.

Watergate is a complex of offices: [link to en.wikipedia.org] It's full name is Watergate.

The rest are to remind of of Watergate - thus they have tagged on 'gate' erroneously.

IvanGate, Moongate, Puppygate - adding 'gate' makes it smell of scandal now.

President Nixon was a douche-bag, going way back the
the "McCarthy Hearings" in 1954, and there were a lot
of politicians who were out to get him -- and they
"got" him.
