Confession (deposition) of an honest politician

Yes, I was influenced by campaign money

Here's a good clear deposition by an honest politician. The campaign money was only $1000.
"Human relationships are built on reciprocity. We’re social beings and making truly disinterested judgments goes against our grain. Social scientists have shown how emotion comes first in decision-making and rationality comes afterwards to explain it. You don’t have to be consciously dishonest to be bought. It’s enough to be grateful."
What if the money influence is not campaign money?

What will happen if the money influence comes from the political boss, to the tune of a few million dollars every year. Every year, for life.

I will follow this politician's explanation. I will be very grateful and reciprocate without being asked.
