Extremely common mistake, yes, but not an entirely innocent one as they, in their defense, would have you believe. All of them do it, though, so you would be correct in the assumption that it is for tilting the election in their favor. The question here is how they go about it. Malicious or not, cheating is still cheating.

Similar cases pf both mistakes include just about the entire banking systems incentives and half a million NGO projects that recieved/s government funding. So cutting them off from all future govt contracts, seems a wee bit extreeme, punish, yes, but don't make it permanent to help them learn from their mistakes.
I suppose that is sensible enough. Only time will tell.

That's right, Bixby Snyder folks.
