Hypocrisy starts at home

This sort of behavior has been made illegal for you -- but in the spirit of hounding Aaron Swartz to death -- not for them.
Over the last four months, employees of the House of Representatives have illegally downloaded dozens of films and TV shows, according to a report shared with Whispers by ScanEye, a website that tracks what IP addresses have downloaded on BitTorrent. BitTorrent is a protocol for sharing large files over the Internet. Unauthorized downloads of copyrighted material is illegal in the U.S.
Good to know there is such respect for the law in Boehner Land.

Or perhaps it is better to make this bi-partisan and declare it the kind of legal respect you should expect in the "Age of the Roaming Drone"?

Pelosi's office dowmloaded The Walking Dead for morale, and also for strategic tips.
