the lesson here seems to be: if you don't make money from your actions, you are allowed to abuse your power to make political rival's constituents lives miserable.

In case you missed the reason the US Supreme court dismissed the convictions 9 to 0, the law they were charged with didn't apply to the wrongdoing, dumb a.. thing they did. Doesn't mean there may not be something else they can be charged with.
