A Spam in every pot

Bill Jones, Republican candidate for governor of California, has sent campaign spam. Unfortunately the California anti-spam law isn't strict enough to put this guy away (now there's a death penalty I could get behind), but we should do our best to make sure his political career is over.

Tom & I got separately spammed yesterday by a city council candidate for the town we lived in three years ago.

According to the Wired article, spam in CA is legal (ethical is another matter altogether) if it includes a way to unsub. The stuff we got yesterday didn't.

I might be down in LA next month. If I am, I'm seriously thinking about filing a lawsuit against them. Just a simple small claims court action, but it'd be good karma, I think.
