By whom?So, that looks implausible. Suppose you're deciding to give a loaded gun to one member of a group. If you don't take sufficient care when selecting the person to whom you give the gun, the fact that you give that person strict instructions not to shoot anyone does not absolve you of (all) responsibility for an ensuing bloodbath. If electors are careless, they can reasonably be held responsible for abuses by elected officials.
