A Jacksonian Congressman from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Ingham would become Jackson's Secretary of the Treasury from 1829-1831. His Exposition justifies resolutions passed by Bucks County Democrats opposing the re-election of John Quincy Adams and favoring Andrew Jackson. Ingham explains that Adams, despite his assertions to the contrary, is a monarchical Federalist who favors a hereditary nobility. He adopts democratic affectations "with a view to deceive the democratic party, and to obtain its assistance, to acquire power." Adams has "cultivated the odious art of hypocrisy" with a "cool premeditated contempt for all moral obligation that conflicted with interest."
Chapter and verse of Adams's career are cited to justify these charges.
