Republican ethics

Didn't win the election? No problem; shake your literacy test requirements and pretend that the write-in votes aren't real.

But they didn't fill in the little bubble! When you're doing a write-in vote, it's pretty obvious that the name you wrote in is the name you're voting for. But not for the Evil Party (unless, of course, they're write-in votes for the Evil Party candidate); it's just another one of the 1,000,000 lucky coincidences that swing the election your way. And after you've been sworn in, well, it would be disruptive to "Democracy" if you're then removed from office because of the tiny detail that you didn't win the election!

Hey, it worked for the Coward in Chief, so why not for every other two-bit thug in the Evil Party?
