============================== CFJ 3347 ==============================

First, this case is wholly IRRELEVANT if the previous case is FALSE.
It's been found previously, *in general*, that if an Officer is found
in a nest of conflicting duties, that it's not reasonable (in an R1504d
sense) to ask em to resign to avoid the breaches, as it is better for
the game that officers not be forced to resign.
However, in this case, a person holding the Governmental Waste office
while holding another non-wasteful office is violating the entire
raison d'être of Governmental Waste in the first place, so it's only
reasonable that the solution be to resign.
Judge lindar's Arguments:
It is the opinion of this judge that indeed resigning is a reasonable
way to avoid breaking the aforementioned rule. While it is not

set an example such that players who hold multiple offices do not
attempt to manipulate penalty leniency to unfairly gain for
