Kelso: Rosa Parks, Mandela … Hart?

Rosa Parks was arrested in 1955 because she refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. She was convicted of disorderly conduct and a violation of a local ordinance. A criminal. Nelson Mandela campaigned against apartheid. He was tried, convicted, and given a life sentence for his beliefs in democracy, freedom and equality. A criminal. Phil Hart researched federal tax law. He wrote a book on taxes. His book's facts and opinions have never been refuted/Starr Kelso, Coeur d'Alene Press op-ed article. More here.

Question: Do you consider Rep. Phil Hart to be kindred spirits with Nelson Mandela and Rosa Parks, as Hart's lawyer Starr Kelso does?
