"An honest politician is one that when he is bought, he stays bought."

- Simon Cameron, who served at various times as a U.S. Senator and as Lincoln's Secretary of War.

With quotes like that, it's not terribly surprising that accusations of corruption forced Lincoln to remove Cameron from his Cabinet position.
