`The sleaze factor'

July 1984
Commonweal;7/13/84, Vol. 111 Issue 9, p396
What pundits and Democrats have labeled the `sleaze factor' will probably trouble the Reagan Administration for the rest of its tenure. For many people, the sleaze factor simply confirms what they always suspected about the greed which lies at the heart of any Republican administration. For others, it simply represents the problems of individuals adjusting their business or entrepreneurial ethics to public office. Mainly, it represents a lack of public service and responsibility.
