With lower-profile politicians, you will (hopefully) have the discipline trickling down, so that local priests and bishops have the courage to deny the Body and Blood.
What I want is a way to assist in helping this discipline trickling down. Perhaps groups of Catholic laymen living near pro-abortion Catholic politicians could monitor these politicians at Mass, to see if they are given communion, then report the scandal to the bishop and/or the Vatican. After all, it is the duty of each individual Catholic to help stop such a public scandal.

I think, once Archbishop Burke begins to knock around some of the American Bishops, the rest will smarten up. For those priests who continue to provide the Eucharist to pro-Abortion politicians, a couple nagging phone calls to the local Bishop from laity would cause some action to begin immediately. I don't think any Bishop is going to want their feet held to the fire after one of their number has already been held responsible in some way.
