Entitled to Retribution?

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Although his latest column does not take a particularly strong stand for proper government, A. Barton Hinkle offers his readers quite the catalogue of abuses of power by government officials from our two big-government parties. Here's a sample:

Campaign finance laws are making retribution easier. Witness Edmund Corsi, an Ohio blogger who needled Ed Ryder, a local Republican member of the Board of Elections. The Election Commission went after Corsi, seeking to impose fines and other penalties because he has spent perhaps a few dozen dollars expressing his political views on his website and in pamphlets without incorporating and registering as a political action committee.
Credit Hinkle with pointing out that we should all be concerned about laws that enable politicians to cater to their pettiest whims -- even when they are "our guys" at the moment.
