I am in need of sources to use for information on my reasearch paper, the theme chosen is how power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

I cannot use most websites, like sparknotes or wikipedia, I am going to use this site, but I still need three more sources from different websites.

What about using some reputable newspaper sources, such as the New York Times or the Washington Post?   Also, does your school or library have access to an EBSCO database?  There are peer-reviewed articles on every topic imaginable.  Ask your school librarian about EBSCO, or your local librarian.  Get a few lessons on how to use it. It works very much like Google, and you will be able to catch on quickly.   Also, Google Scholar could have some free articles, although not as many as EBSCO.  You might also turn to history or current events for instances of how power corrupts.  Russia, North Korea, and Myanmar come to mind, as does Hitler's Germany.  If this is a research paper for an English class, you could also ask your teacher if examples from literature would be appropriate. The world of literature is filled with stories about how power corrupts.
