Political leadership and the problem of "dirty hands"

Ethics and International Affairs 8 (1):159–175 (1994)
Abstract
Garrett assesses the morality of leaders' political choices. Does the nature of leadership force us to tolerate or even accept marginally moral acts? Do acts considered unethical in one's private life become ethical when performed by a public servant for the good of the public?
