We are in full swing of the election season and the headlines continue to highlight mostly Clinton scandals plus now the latest Trump scandal in Florida. That’s right, Donald Trump apparently gave money improperly to the Attorney General of Florida, at least according to CNN and others.
Money corrupts just like power corrupts. Yet I keep hearing that your beloved corrupt politician is okay because he or she is better than the other. NO! Corruption is wrong and we need to stop voting for people who we know are corrupt. That is the only way to begin righting our system back in favor of We The People.
