No! You're misunderstanding my position.  Jones deserved to lose the election and probably would have lost without the interference.  But even if he had won the election somehow, the acts engaged in by the dems still undermined the election from a trust standpoint. 
Do you feel the same thing about Trump in 2016, that his election victory has been undermined from a trust standpoint?

I don't like what was done in either election that we have been discussing.  However, I'm not sure that the underhanded behavior was of a sufficient amount to change the results in either.  Moreover, I've seen no evidence that Trump was behind any of the dirty tricks.  Going forward i would like to see more protections in place.  Having said all of that I do think the hypocrisy of the Dems - complaining about yet at the same time engaging in the same dirty tricks - is off the charts.

Hi Ross,

Do you really advocate this argument?

Candidate A has been accused of past sexual misconduct.
Therefore it is appropriate to engage in acts that undermine our elections in order to prevent his election.

I am against undermining elections in any case. I was just stating that Moore had more problems than underhanded efforts to smear him in Facebook.

I hear your comment about inserting the Clinton name in the story and the song changes according to the tribe you associate with. I'm happy to see Hoffman investigated and disciplined for his crimes and I'll be happy to see what the Mueller investigation turns up, if anything, and those responsible disciplined/prosecuted.

I don't think persuing justice needs to be a partisan. Whether it's Watergate, Iraq, Benghazi, or the 2016 election, something bad happened or something was very questionable in order to launch an investigation. It is no more dangerous or waste of time than shutting down the government, threatening default, campaigning, or the other 70% of the time our leaders spend scoring points by introducing legislation that is doa to satisfy their voters.

We should evaluate it leaders based on how they govern, the tone they set for the country, and how they represent us to our neighbors.
