Limited Government [Part 2]

The Abacus broached this subject just yesterday.

I missed this poignant observation by the Abacus's new found favorite Senator:

“That requires an explanation,” Specter said. “The N.F.L. has a very preferred status in our country with their antitrust exemption. The American people are entitled to be sure about the integrity of the game. It’s analogous to the C.I.A. destruction of tapes. Or any time you have records destroyed.


I think Captain Ed nails it.

So what do we have here? We have a senior Senator sticking his nose into a violation of league rules that got resolved months ago, threatening a private business that has committed no violation of the law, just coincidentally two days before their biggest game of the year.
