In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes.
~ U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower's warning about the dangers of political corruption.

These are politicians or villains in a position of authority who engage in corrupt, sometimes evil, acts against their own people. They abuse the law/rules for their own purposes, sometimes exploiting it or changing it outright. Though not all officials have absolute power, they tend to abuse what power they do have until their term in power ends, or they die or are removed from power.
