3. But she took her hat off!
How can you prosecute someone for taking her hat off? For that hatless minute, she was no longer governor, right? And the Assistant Governor took over. So laws limiting the activities of the governor wouldn't apply to her. Likewise, in the Troopergate scandal, you have to ask, was she wearing a hat when she fired the Director of Public Safety for refusing to fire her ex-brother-in-law? If there's no hat, then there's no guilt, and that's that.

I can make scholarly legal arguments like this because I can see a Law School from my back yard.
