New Election Formula: Final Count = Votes – (Lies x Viewers)

Wouldn’t it be nice if politicians could pay a price for distorted campaign ads? Besides tossing them in the clink for deception (the best idea), how about you take away one vote for each time a voter might have seen that lie? One lie broadcast 50 times to 200,000 homes would be a loss of 1 million votes. Seems fair to me. (Of course, you’d like to think lies do cost politicians votes in real life, because we’re smart enough to tell. You’d like to think.)
