Eric Brodsky started this petition to U.S. Citizens

While many U.S. citizens now tolerate and accept lies from our elected officials, I believe there are still a number of us who feel that it should not be permissable. In order to have frank and open dialogue about any issue it is critical to separate fact from fiction. Our elected officials are not held accountable for their actions and we must do something about it immediately. I'm proposing that a law be enacted that states the following: 

"Any elected official of any government body, entity, or municipality in the United States that willfully and knowingly commits a perjorious action in public, that leads to considerable consequences to the general public, will be subject to arrest and if convicted, shall be sentenced to prison (length of time to be determined by the jury)."
