10 The Problem(s)Beginning at the end of the Civil War, the US Government became interested in groups such as Big Business. Big Business started to influence and take control over the Government.Politicians started to accept bribes from these groups because they would help them out financially in donations called Campaign Contributions.Leaders of political parties all over the United States had control over politicians at every level of the government. They had the final say about who ran for political office.People voted in public so election frauds were common. It was very easy to tell who a person voted for because the ballots were different colors.A lot of the government jobs were controlled by the people elected into office. Mayors, governors, and The President would give jobs to their supporters. This was called the spoils system.In 1883 the Pendleton Act was passed which gave The President even more power to appoint officials of his choice to federal jobs.Until 1930, parties called political machines were prevalent. They would abuse their power and try to get others to vote their way by bribing. They would use money to bribe and give rewards to whoever followed directions. These groups met at Tammany Hall in New York City.
11 The Solution(s)The main proposal to solve the problem of government corruption was to give the people more control over the government.The voters, instead of the officials already in office will have more say in who will run for elected office.People were given the power to remove an elected official from office if they went against their wishes.Recall elections could be held if the people formed a petition.If people wanted a law enacted, they could present it to the legislature to be proposed as a new law.The limit of one term was considered for the president because he then would not have to worry about reelection.Whenever political parties received donations, they had to make the source public.Voting would be private to limit the possibility of pressure at the ballots.

13 "G.H. Pendleton is perhaps best remembered for his opposition to Abraham Lincoln's policies during the Civil War. In the 1864 election, Pendleton was the oppositional vice presidential candidate, on the Democratic ticket with George B. McClellan." He was elected for the Senate in 1878 for Ohio. He was chair of the Civil Service Committee. He became popular in the Civil Service Reform Act.
14 "Tammany Hall, located on West 14th Street in New York City, ca. 1914 "Tammany Hall, located on West 14th Street in New York City, ca Tammany Hall was the meeting place for, and popular name of, the Democratic Party political machine that dominated much of New York City's political life until 1933." [Library of Congress]
15 "An undated portrait of William Marcy Tweed, better known as Boss Tweed. As the head of Tammany Hall, the U.S. Democratic Party organization in New York City, Tweed became infamous for his greed and arrogant abuse of political power." [Library of Congress] Abusing power was very common during the age of progression. Many politicians would receive bribes and sneak under the law.
