I think that I should start getting my records sealed in case I ever run for political office. It’s embarassing to admit just how law abiding and staid I’ve lived my life, but there it is. Heck, I didn’t even have a beer while I was in college. (“Yes, there were open beer cans there but I didn’t imbibe”)
It seems that the best way to advertise my boring dependability without coming off a total geek in a political campaign would be to get the records sealed and then have my opponents spend their efforts on getting them unsealed. Then when there’s nothing there, my opponent has wasted his time and I get a boost from the free advertising of my lack of illegality. (“Oops, it turns out that he did pay off his student loans”) A nice win-win scenario.
