Because if I remember correctly, and forgive me if my knowledge base from that period is incorrect, as I am neither a historian or an American.
America was a fledgling nation, the country had a common goal and were just getting used to the fact that they were a new country. Corruption is always there, but during the early stages of a country's formation, and being the time that it was (information was more through word of mouth and newspapers) you didn't need to lie. You could tell a different truth. What was there to lie about anyway, "Hey guys we totally didn't just form a new country and are setting up how the government runs."
