The weather above the law remains beautiful:

The White House said Tuesday that President Obama won’t discipline Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, a possible running mate for Hillary Clinton, over his violation of a federal law that forbids campaigning on government property.

Why won’t Castro be disciplined? Because he didn’t intend to break the law:

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Mr. Castro had fessed up to his “inadvertent error.”

“To his credit, Secretary Castro acknowledged the mistake that he made,” Mr. Earnest said. “He owned up to it, and he’s taken the necessary steps to prevent it from happening again. That’s the expectation that people have when you make a mistake, particularly in a situation like this.”

But remember, fellow peasants, “I didn’t intend to break that law” is only an acceptable defense when used by our intellectual, moral and ethical betters in positions of power.
