(CNSNEWS) — For the second time in two years, Washington, D.C., has been ranked the number one city for cheaters.

According to AshleyMadison.com, a web site that bills itself as “the world’s leading married dating service for discreet encounters,” the nation’s capital was at the top of the list of America’s Least Faithful Cities with 34,157 sign-ups – more sign-ups per capita in 2012.

“With enormous public attention paid to political cheating scandals this year, including the Gen. Petraeus affair, there was no doubt that Washington residents would be influenced. Living in DC it’s crucial to keep up appearances and therefore adultery has become a way of life for many of the city’s most powerful residents,” said AshleyMadison.com Founder and CEO Noel Biderman.
