My mother, June Brann, and I had a lot of political discussions over the years on a variety of subjects.
On one occasion—and more years back than I want to admit—we were discussing the public’s integrity and the tide of elections generally.
She said, “People will always vote their pocketbooks.”
I replied, “The people will never vote for an individual with higher moral character than that which they personally possess. The moral fiber of those elected to office reflects the moral fiber of the populace.”
