    Any government official serving as an elected representative of the people does extreme harm to the same, if vocalizing any words, which may be perceived as being directed against the state or the people of the state publicly or privately. The first and foremost duty of any elected official is the safety and security of those represented and to the state as established. To utter words against in anyway is sedition, treasonous, and detrimental at best. The far-reaching consequences of such denials can, and often does, echo through time as history shows, with reverberations and repercussions that future, and succeeding generations must contend with. A law against such utterances although ideally unnecessary is a welcome addition. By such a law being in place allows for the people to legally and peaceably exercise their ability to remove representatives who fail to meet the most fundamental and basic of responsibilities. The idea and concept of an impeachment process is not new and has been utilized before.
