Why politicians won't do what the electorate wants

It's not just money and greed, of course: it's also partisan political dishonesty. See my previous post for a good example. Senator Feinstein had the allegation months ago, but didn't mention it at all during the confirmation hearings. Only when it looked like all their other efforts to block it had failed did she raise the accusation, and even then in a vague, underhanded way. Honesty? Integrity? Fairness? She wouldn't recognize them if they jumped up and bit her where it hurts.
