Lies in Political Campaign Material

Thanks for the story about the lies printed on material sent on behalf of folks supporting Measure T. This is a shameful, sickening story. 

Even more sickening, at least to me, is that this behavior is not prosecuted. Surely it must be illegal to use lies to win votes? Surely our constitutional right of free speech does not permit lying to manipulate votes? 

What has gone wrong with our society?
