Letter: Politicians’ money pool is tempting for corruption

Wouldn’t we all like to have just a small part of what politicians spend to either get re-elected or run for office. Most of us would never see that much money in two life times.

Which reminds me of a good friend who long ago was a committee man for one of the parties who said that a very well known politico once said that anyone who runs for office, “…if they are not corrupt,” (he used the word crook) “when they are elected, they will be by the time they get out.”

Unfortunately, my friend is no longer with us so I’ll never know who said that. With all that has been happening for some time now, I can see what he meant. Seems we see the promises they make are never fulfilled so what are we supposed to believe? Anyone want to run for anything?
