Your revelations sound shockingly credible!

Notwithstanding the fact, however, that accepting bribes against your own creed's interests can be viewed as particularely vile and unscrupulous.

Jimmy Carter, for one, would not appear as a person to accept a "bribe".

Being financially independent, not exactly a materialist and a man of rockfast convictions (which admittedly were not helpful to many people, though) Carter should hardly regard monetary contributions as an incentive to alter his course of action in the interest of any donor.
