Some people think that in every barrel of politicians there are only a few rotten ones. But if deceit is a quality of rottenness, I believe all effective politicians are rotten. They must be deceitful in order to do the job properly. Someone who is scrupulously honest about obeying the rules of society will never be an effective politician.

Assuming that the author’s statements are accurate, which one of the following statements CANNOT be true?
(A) Some people think all politicians are rotten.
(B) Some politicians are scrupulously honest.
(C) Some people define a politician’s job as obeying the rules of society.
(D) Some deceitful politicians are ineffective.
(E) Some scrupulously honest politicians are effective.
