I thought we were all mature adults here? or, mostly such anyway... 

if LA kicks off a policy of Guilt by Association, I'm pretty sure every
single person on this list would have reason to not be elected. 

IOW, who gives a rats arse who you are/were/might-be associated with, we
aint electing anyone's employer or social club, we are electing an
individual person.
