    I mean, let's face it, in 4 years the candidate any such actions might affect has a goodly portion of their term behind them anyways...Or in the case of representatives, may already have been voted out/re-elected.
    I think you are right. And think of how a judge or jury would look at this 4 - 5 years later...They wouldn't throw the book at them in my honest opinion. It would seem like some small detail. I am not sure on this, but isn't this nearing the statute of limitations? If so...a little more muddling, and this is a great crime to commit because it would take over 7 years for them to figure out you did anything wrong.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    DOJ, liberal groups that oppose voter ID require photo ID to enter their buildings
    posted at 1:50 pm on April 5, 2012 by Rob Bluey

    U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is currently blocking implementation of voter ID laws in South Carolina and Texas, claiming such measures are “unnecessary,” discriminatory and would make it harder for minorities to vote.

    But if you’re planning to visit Holder’s office in Washington, D.C., you better bring a photo ID. The Department of Justice has two armed guards stationed outside its headquarters to check IDs of anyone who wants to enter — employees and visitors.

    Holder’s politically motivated crusade against voter ID laws has the support of liberal advocacy organizations ranging from the Center for American Progress and Media Matters to the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the Advancement Project.

    Each of these organizations has criticized photo identification for voting, yet they require it to enter their Washington, D.C., offices as well. There’s even a sign in the building of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law: “ALL VISITORS MUST SHOW ID.”

    That's funny no matter who you are. You can't get into the DOJ building without an ID. Doesn't that disenfranchise the poor who don't have ID's from going to the DOJ for help?
