I don't think it's a problem at all. In the age we live in you can find the truth about a candidate pretty easily and as a general rule of thumb it's usually somewhere between what the candidate is saying about himself and what the candidates opponent is saying about it. I am trying to wrap my mind around a democracy that claims to have free speech then controls what lies politicians can tell about themselves and their opponents. Seems weird to me.
