Yes, the same people who are attempting to pass bills that would provide stiff penalties for those who illegally download material, happen to be doing exactly that - Illegally downloading material.In late October, someone at the U.S. House of Representatives decided to catch up on the latest season of Dexter, illegally downloading an episode of the TV series while at a congressional office. In the days that followed, with Hurricane Sandy threatening to keep federal workers hunkered down at home, employees of Congress downloaded the 2012 mob film Lawless, a Halloween-themed episode of The Middle, and an episode from Season 9 of CSI: New York.
No wonder Congress is so unpopular. They are a bunch of hypocrites, Democrats and Republicans alike - Which gives me an idea. Congress should now pass a bill providing an automatic 5 year prison sentence to anybody who is a member of Congress. LOL.
