Don't forget that Operation Destroy Joe was aided and abetted by his own state government (of the people, etc.). Columbus bureaucrats illegally obtained and leaked his personal details. They received a slap on the wrist.
It's laughable to hear leftists moan about money and corporations in elections when they control every government institution funded with your cash (forget the political party in temporary power...statists are statists). It's akin to fighting WWII while funding German and Japanese war manufacturing.
