Were we a society who believed in the rule of law; or better yet, were we a society not governed by those above the law, these statutes might be treated more seriously and their penalties meted out justly:
18 USC 594
18 USC 371
Intimidation of Voters: Whoever intimidates, threatens, coerces, or attempts to intimidate, threaten, or coerce, any other person for the purpose of interfering with the right of such other person to vote or to vote as he may choose, or of causing such other person to vote for, or not to vote for, any candidate for the office of President, Vice President, Presidential elector, Member of the Senate, Member of the House of Representatives, Delegate from the District of Columbia, or Resident Commissioner, at any election held solely or in part for the purpose of electing such candidate, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both
18 USC 2384

If, however, the offense, the commission of which is the object of the conspiracy, is a misdemeanor only, the punishment for such
conspiracy shall not exceed the maximum punishment provided for such misdemeanor.
18 USC 1505
Seditious Conspiracy: If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place

execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the
authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
Then again, are we really sure that this offense doesn't apply?
