One incentive that politicians seeking re-election might have is the use public funds to curry favor with voters. “All the King’s Men,” winner of the 1950 Oscar for Best Picture, depicts Gov. Willie Stark (a thinly disguised version of Louisiana Gov. Huey Long in an Academy Award winning performance by Broderick Crawford) building bridges, schools, and other public works and having them named for him.Available on Amazon.com
