    Except this doesn't resolve the issue if it happens again in a different district to a different Representative or Senator. And it doesn't address the fact that Arizona's 8th congressional district is being unrepresented in Congress.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Perhaps, I'm not convinced however this couldn't be addressed through a recall election.
