  ... The man
Who sold his country is here in hell; the man
Who altered laws for money;
and a father
Who knew his daughter's bed. All of them dared,
And more than dared, achieved, unspeakable
Ambitions. If I had a hundred tongues,
A hundred iron throats, I could not tell 
The fullness of their crime and punishment.

Virgil, Aeneid, Book VI (trans. Rolfe Humphries)

Read this, ye politicians, and despair.
