“I would say yes with the whole Paris Hilton thing. In general, I think they should set a better example and show that they are willing to pay for their mistakes like everyone else.”

Of course, when you are rich and famous, the law doesn't apply to you.

"...the people we election to represent us, need I say more."

In that sense, "election" sounds like a threat.
