Sarcasm or not, I agree. This had a high likelyhood of affecting the election one way or another - no I'm not talking about the vote buying, but the presence of a seemingly real candidate on the ballot, raising money, campaigning...

There's no sarcasm involved. It's an example of the contempt the rulers of the budding police state we live in have for our system that democracy itself has become just another prop to be used when it's convenient. And someone once said that the definition of a good police force is one that solves more crimes than it commits. The FBI and Justice Department people who signed off on this should be arrested for fraud.

Nor is it a coincidence that this has taken place in West Virginia. Vote buying? Please. You could bring such charges in any major city in America, particularly in the minority areas. Can you imagine the outrage if the FBI put up a fake black candidate in D.C.? They can only get away with it in West Virginia because of decades of demonization that has led to places like West Virginia and the people who live there being considered to be lesser citizens, hell lesser humans, than other people. As if to drive home the point, one editorial in Slate even managed to work in the word "Deliverance" into its title.
