Megan McArdle puts forth an excellent suggestion:

“I’m not distressed to hear that the Feds were spying on Eliot Spitzer. No, not because I don’t like the man, but because I think maybe we should spy on our politicians, all the time. No probable cause, you say? I fling back at you Mark Twain’s observation that America only has one distinct criminal class: Congress. . . . I think it’s entirely appropriate that the anti-corruption police watch politicians like hawks. They’ve chosen public office; that conveys a lot of responsibility to the public, including assuring them that your votes aren’t being bought outright. I also think that politicians, when caught in a crime, should automatically get the maximum penalty; if they think the law is such a good idea, they ought to suffer heartily when they disregard it.”
