Money And Politics

Wednesday, 17 September 2014 20:05
The marriage of money with politics in the U.S. traces back to the colonial days. In 1759, George Washington employed rum punch, money and a fiddler to bolster his election to the House of Burgesses. There was an understanding, in those days, that men of means and education assumed leadership positions in the government. Over time, however, the political process changed and politics became big business.
