This is an interesting example of a democratic political process that works.

He is now putting it right to tell the American people about his financial affairs. http://www.todayonline.com/World/EDC120123-0000019/Stung-by-defeat,-Romney-ready-to-right-tax-mistake This lesson is also applicable in Singapore.
