I was blackmailed by SirNick, Scourge of the North, who tried to use his powers as Speaker to strong-arm his way back into the Senate race. It didn't work, and I'd like to see an official statute against blackmail.

Since there appears to be no opposition to this bill, and it looks vital after Sir Nick I'll motion for a vote later this morning

This bill seems to be straight forward.

It will have my support.

 I'm opening a vote on this bill. All members have 48 hours to vote, or until all members have voted. Due to Matt's registered LOA this will mean it's just me, Clyde, Winfield and Pikachu.

Please vote Aye,Nay or Abstain
