I do not think this is overblown at all. In fact I think the discussion does not goes far enough. The league in which I commish, a former commissioner was caught changing his salaries to stay under cap. He was immediately dismissed from the league and banned for life. And this is a live league, face-to-face. Cheating commissioners destroy leagues and why do you want cheaters in your league anyways. I'd start recruiting replacements.
And we have a three commissioner system: 2 do the dirty work, the 3rd backups and acts as deciding vote when the first two disagree/outta town. Works like a charm and has for years. I'd report them, kick them out, you take over commish, appoint two new ones under the above structure, and then recruit new owners. It saved our league.
