Validity: Proves Arnt Gulbrandsen from 216:01, Richard S. Holmes from
216:03, Arnt Gulbrandsen from 216:04, Nathan Russell from 216:06, Arnt
Gulbrandsen from 206:07, Karl Low from 206:08, and Ed Murphy from 206:09
all wrong by providing a higher power. The specified power is higher than
that of the previous valid Rule, has not been named before, has been shown
how its neat, and has been shown how it corrupts: the power of the FRC
Membership. Rule is VALID.

Style: Corruption, bribery, abuse of power. It's all here. +1.50
