Qualifications for Office

Rusty from Georgia writes in the Knoxville Sentinel about the low security used for the email server servicing Ralph Reed’s campaign.  So he asks:

Can someone who can’t even run an e-mail server preside over the state Senate?

And, speaking of e-mail, Jay Bookman takes Reed to task regarding his lapse of ethics and the Abramoff affair.

A group called DefCon (Campaign to Defend the Constitution) has paid for advertising to take Reed to task for his past alliances.  However, Reed’s campaign manager say we shouldn’t pay heed to these taxpaying Americans (see stories on immigration) as they are “left wing radicals.”

So, begging the question, do tax paying left wing radicals deserve any less voice than taxpaying illegal immigrants?
