    Decent people assume other people are decent.  In fact, assuming other people are decent is a large part of the ethos that decent people live their lives by. And so, people believe the excuses, they believe that the corrupt person is acting with the best of intentions. And so the con game is allowed to go on and on. It is pathetically easy to get away with bad behavior when no one calls you on it.
