My father used to say that he was against the death penalty, except for those actions of government officials that involved "a betrayal of the public trust.". At the time he was referring to officials of the Nixon administration.

I agree with Mark Kleiman:
...if there's a ten-year federal mandatory minimum sentence for selling a kilogram of cocaine, a ten-year mandatory for fraudulently depriving someone of the right to vote would be just about right.
