    To be fair, Hanson-Ashby followers do have to appear sort of normal – before they get into ‘the big house’ – or no one would vote them in …. after they get in anything goes.

    As I understand it, giving your Facebook password to others is a violation of the terms of the agreement with Facebook. Maybe all these accounts should be closed by Facebook.
