dont understand the meaning of the word compromise in these two example? If we back down on this issue, our reputation will be compromised. His political career ended when he compromised himself by accepting bribes.

"To compromise oneself" means to do something that damages your reputation so badly that people can no longer trust or admire you. Your second example can thus be reworded as follows: "His political career ended when he proved himself untrustworthy by accepting bribes".

In both cases it means harmed, or damaged.
