    Yep. This also touches on vaguely written laws and how they come back to bite us. A law can be written as, "All laws must sunset after 10 years, and must be renewed to continue." No mention of *how*, and as you say, they could all be renewed with one fell swoop.

    I don't believe he was outright violating the Constitution... if only because he knew he'd never get away with it... but he was clearly trying to do an end run, while staying juuuuuuust inside the boundaries, and having the same end result as violating the Constitution.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
