I oppose the implementation of this suggestion.

No rule prohibiting what Paul and I did existed prior to our doing it. I don’t see any way in which it impacted the integrity of the election process.

However, it has been made clear that such conduct is not desired and I see no reason that simply making that fact known is not sufficient. Going to written-only or pre-fabricated speeches is an unnecessary overreaction, IMHO.
