Sorry Newt. As a history buff, political corruption has been going on since the first decipherable human word was written around 4000 BC. Probably nearing the top of the most corrupt in the USA was the Clinton/Obama years.
Of course, over a 16 year period, both administrations did some good. As I published before, even Hitler did some good by building highways 85-90 years ago superior to those in this country today.
