Grover Cleveland

In 1893, President Grover Cleveland, facing an imminent vote on repeal of the Silver Purchase Act, disappeared for five straight days. When a trusted investigative reporter exposed the secret, he was fired and, with the help of Cleveland and his confidants, disgraced. Cleveland, whose campaign motto was “Tell the Truth,” went to his grave denying the incredible series of events that transpired during his absence. The truth wasn’t fully revealed until decades later. This story serves as a reminder that even the most honest men can be liars and hypocrites when the stakes are high. We are all flawed, and none more so than politicians who seek to gain power.
