Has anyone ever personally known of a truly honest and ethical politician?


Just curious, has anyone ever personally known of a truly honest and ethical politician, or candidate who ran for political office, and then once elected, remained honest and ethical throughout his or her term of office? I do not want any names, as this is not a platform to campaign for anyone, etc., just maybe a number ... zero, one ... five, whatever the case may be. Thank you for answering.

    Hi Kathleen, thank you for sharing. Yes, unfortunately, it seems once exposed and they become a part of such atmosphere, over time, it seems it erodes the ethics away.

    Hi Dear Romeos, yes, I thought that very thing ... oxymoron! I know there are some good men and women out there, but it seems if they are in it for too long, then it seems to have an effect even on those with the best of intentions, sadly.

    Hello Borsia, thank you for answering. You have made such a valid point as to exactly what happens, which is a sad state of affairs, indeed. Yes, corruption, greed and the evil in the hearts of men seem to prevail over time.
