The propagation of “Where is Ruby Freemon?” tags in the street angered both the Federal and the Virginia governments in equal measure. They arrested anyone caught painting the tags and charged them with spreading disinformation. It was a crime the new administration took very seriously, and no bail was granted to anyone charged with undermining the United States via such a foul act. The disappearance of the former Vice President’s wife was fake news, and any public discussion of the matter had to be silenced. It is ironic that even as they ran out of money, they filled the jails and prisons with new political enemies, to the point that more people were soon jailed for political crimes than criminal crimes. It was a dangerous time to question the Federal government’s narrative.
