people are corrupt.
how many people walk into a store, find $20 on the floor, and pocket it without trying to find the owner?
how many people steal produce from the self-pay stand?
I was once involved in loading a ship. the crane team demanded a case of soda for their help.
many many people are greedheads and will take advantage. when I was little I remember a truckload of potatoes turning over and all sorts of people
were scrambling to grab.
politicians are notoriously corrupt because they have greater opportunities. lobbyists etc will literally walk in their door cold and offer them
I suspect some pols, like Elijah Cummings, start out as idealists but can't resist the temptation to get rich.
Harry Truman supposedly said nobody gets rich in politics unless their crooked. he was by all accounts pretty honest.
