Political hack

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A political hack is a negative term ascribed to a person who is part of the political party apparatus, but whose intentions are more aligned with victory than personal conviction. The term "hired gun" is often used in tandem to further describe the moral bankruptcy of the "hack". When a group of political hacks of a similar political affiliation get together, they are sometimes called a political hack pack.[1]
