Who are these untrustworthy people? I have never been a candidate but am
getting tired of these implications that some of the candidates in the
past have been untrustworthy or that others have succeeded to become

candidate received a significant number of votes, ie. more than 1 or 2,
so apparently has the trust of somebody.
