Overbroadness Enabling Remit Violation

A law is passed purportedly for some specific purpose, but the specific powers and prohibitions it contains are excessively broad and are not confined to use for that specific end.

Legislators may make assurances that such a law will only be used for those specific purposes, but these will not be codified in the legislation itself and such observations will generally be ignored by prosecutors given sufficient time.
