As Dave says, this isn't the reality right now, but it could be a very  
real one down the road. The Council is likely going to end up handling  
both a significant amount of money and dealing very directly with  
hirings and firings. Because of this, we need safeguards in place  
_now_ to prevent fraud from taking place in the future.
