Are Real Life examples allowed for this trope? It made me think of Nixon, exposed for cheating in an election that he was going to win by a landslide anyway.

Took out this:
- In the first season of Glee, Sue Sylvester tries to sabotage the Glee Club's performance at sectionals by leaking their setlist to their opponents. Not only did this effort prove futile, as the Club pulled through with a brand-new setlist improvised at the last second, but their performance impressed the opposing teams so greatly that they came clean about how Sue had helped them cheat. Principal Figgins is outraged, and Sue is promptly suspended.
