Hypocrisy is the state of pretending to have virtues,
moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc.,
that one does not actually have.
Hypocrisy involves the deception of others and is thus a kind of lie.
Hypocrisy is not simply failing to practice those virtues that one preaches.

Is the rumor John Robinson asked about on September 3, 2011,
the same one Joe Guarino asked about on September 5, 2011?
How is this not a very good indication
that Greensboro's 2011 City Council race
was not manipulated by our paper of record?
How is this not journalistic malpractice?
If Greensboro, NC was ranked as the second most "holiest" city in America,
why would the paper of record not report what they probably should have?
How many relatively religious residents gave campaign money to some,
without knowing what they probably should have?
Disfranchisement is the revocation of the right of suffrage
(the right to vote) of a person or group of people,
or rendering a person's vote less effective, or ineffective.
...The disfranchisement of British subjects in America
led to the American Revolutionary War under the rallying cry
"No taxation without representation".
Minors under the voting age can be considered disfranchised.
While this is because most of those under the age of majority
lack the capacity to cast an independent vote,
minors are fully subject to taxation by regional and federal governments.
