Still, a constitutional right to a _fair_ election is more than
implied, even mandated, by same... even if a ludicrously
proffered right to _be_ elected is not. Ridiculing someone
libelously to discredit activities immaterial to consideration
is _not_ constitutionally protected activity. Lawful activity
regarding interests harming no one _is_.

Like, it's been a decade and change... Restore John Ford.
Otherwise? The Constitution is a fraud.

Who dares to disagree?
