Furthermore, it has been stated that any enterprise undertaken by the #publicofficial who tends to weaken public confidence and undermine the sense of security for individual rights is against public policy. Fraud in its elementary #commonlaw sense of deceit-and this is one of the meanings that #fraud bears [483 U.S. 372] in the statute. See #UnitedStates v. Dial, 757 F.2d 163, 168 (7th Cir1985) includes the deliberate concealment of material information in a setting of #fiduciary obligation. A public official is a fiduciary toward the public, including, in the case of a judge, the litigants who appear before him and if he deliberately conceals material information from them, he is guilty of fraud. McNally v United States 483 U.S. 350 (1987)
