#3 ...There needs to be a 28th Amendment:

1) No person shall be named nor elected to a vacant seat in the House of Representatives or Senate if they are directly related by blood or marriage to the previous office holder.

2) Any person who is disqualified under the above standard may run for the office at the second general election following.

Not even the Soviets did this crap.

#4 I want an anti dynasty amendment. Skip a generation, no family members (out to fifth cousins) by birth or marriage from the same generation at the same time.

#8 ^ Shakedown artist who has extorted millions from Johnson and Johnson and other corporates regulated by her hubby's committee.

This is corruption hidden in plain sight. Not even trying to hide it. Avenatti-ish.
