Is it OK if I inject some facts here?

Mormons have an unpaid lay clergy at the local level. A Mormon's bishop's term is usually around five years. A bishop leads a ward, which is just what Mormons call a congregation that covers a certain territory. There can be multiple wards that meet in the same church building, each ward has its own bishop. Multiple wards & churches make up a stake, which is lead by a stake president.

Romney has been both a bishop and a stake president. Stake president is higher up on the food chain but everyone just mentions bishop because... people are ignorant? Words are hard?

I heard there's a gang called McKenna For Governor and they go around in suits and ties and tag buildings with McK. Is this enough to force McKenna from wearing the gang's clothing?

I've been thinking about starting a gang called McKenna For Governor. Now, we'd unfortunately have to do some criminal stuff, so I'm thinking perhaps some "McK" graffiti tags or something. Then, we'd need to hang out with McKenna, perhaps at some political events, so it's "clear and convincing" he's associated with us. Finally, we'd need to get a judge to take away McKenna's rights, even though he's committed no crime, so he'll stop wearing our gang clothes -- suits and ties and so forth.

The bottom line is if you associate with a gang your rights can be taken away even if you have committed no crime. Awesome.
