    Nothing wrong with what he did its just how he did it. Working for a congressman you should know the rules however we give you a break as most congressman don’t know the rules they made

    Why wouldn’t he have procured a license unless for some reason he couldn’t? That would be disturbing since he worked for a congressman!
