“Money is the mother’s milk of politics.” — Jesse Marvin Unruh [1922-1987]

“An honest politician is one who when he’s brought stays bought.” — Simon Cameron [1799-1889]

“Politicians are a set of men who have interests aside from the interests of the people, and who, to say the most of them, are, taken as a mass, at least one long step removed from honest men. I say this with the greater freedom because, being a politician, myself, none can read it as personal.” — Abraham Lincoln [1809-1865]
