The ugly face of the blatant self revelation

Following their refusal of Bank Indonesia governor nominees, DPR members issue funny statements. A particular one that is so "revealing" is this:

[A parliament member] says that the solidity [he seems to be meaning: the strong determination, boldness] of the refusing camp is an indication that this time, there has been no money politics involved... (my emphasis)

Assuming that Kompas quoted him right and that money politics is still the common euphemism for bribe, this can mean: 1) in all the previous time, bribery was at play, 2) when the House approves a government's proposal it is because there is money politics involved

Oh boy, you said it yourself!
