This quote by John McCain seems to be referring to corruption in politics due to money and influence. McCain acknowledges that as someone who worked in Washington, he understands how “money corrupts” the political system.

He and others had tried to curb this corruption through campaign finance and ethics reforms, but as the issues that have come to light recently show, “we didn’t complete the job” – indicating their reform efforts did not go far enough.

The overall interpretation is that McCain is lamenting how money in politics continues to enable corruption, and that more work remains to be done to address this problem from his perspective.
