    And apparently they also think they are above accountability.  Alas, so often that is the case.

    It's not just at the national level, either.  We have a county commissioner under investigation by the state DOJ for allegedly illegally videotaping a private meeting before the May primary where commission candidates were interviewed by a local business group.  The purpose of the meeting was for the group to decide on a candidate endorsement.  

    A month before the general election (a run-off for this office), an edited-to-distort version of the incumbent's interview showed up on YouTube and on the web site of the local tea party.  The commissioner under investigation has been a long-time adversary of her commission colleague who is the incumbent in the race, is an active supporter of the tea party candidate, has not denied the allegations and has refused to respond to questions from the business group, the press or her constituents.

    County commissioner is a non-partisan office.  Party identifications are well-known, but are not supposed to be used in any campaign material.  This has not stopped the tea party candidate from prominently displaying a tea cup and tea bag on her signs.  Or from using illegally placed or oversized signs.  Rules do not seem to apply to her and there's been no enforcement.  

    The commissioner race is too close to call.
