In the latest episode of Lest We Forget-Historical, host Lillian Cauldwell examines the role of money in politics and its corrupting influence that benefits only the wealthy and powerful, sidelining the real citizens of the United States. She starts with a historical perspective, noting the early instances of monetary influence in politics, such as our first President, George Washington, who enticed voters with rum punch, ginger cookies, and snacks. This set a precedent for using temptations to sway voters towards favored and affluent candidates. Ms. Cauldwell plans to further explore how money continues to pour into the coffers of political candidates, supported by their wealthy sponsors and political influencers in Part II, May 3, 2024.
