Robot politicians one day?

Would it be a bad thing to have artificial intelligence senators and representatives to be our lawmakers one day?  A computer doesn`t have a "zipper or hands" to get in trouble.  We could have a dozen different candidates to choose from  social conservative/fiscal liberal to pro gay rights/pro 2nd amendment politicians.


Since the buzzword these days is "tribalism" and we only vote on issues and overlook our candidate`s personal shortcomings, why not just vote on computer programs that will vote our individual way, but since there`s no zipper, they can`t get into trouble that way?

The Russians are trying to do this all ready.  No, let's have real, fallible human beings.  There are too many algorithms in the wrong places.
