Conmen . . . Bloodstock . . . Life on Mars . . . Haughey

When conmen target certain individuals, their victims are said to have been conned. When their scam is in danger of being detected, the conmen move to another area.

When "patriots" con a nation and do not move on but continue to suck the life blood out of "a country we all love", what word describes this? Could we be said to have been "cowened"?
