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.
I guess a vote buying sting should be conducted in a year with no elections?
You could bring such charges in any major city in America, particularly in the minority areas.
Exactly. So much for that prop you call democracy. Until we stop vote fraud in America we don't have a democracy. If only real votes were counted in 2000 Bush would have won Wisconsin and New Mexico, not to mention Florida by a cheat proof margin.

Until we stop vote fraud
I'm am very much supportive of this. However, LE should be able to do so without distorting the election process.

When has nothing to do with it, it's how. I suppose I shouldn't be shocked, but I am a little, over how Freepers respond to this episode, treating it as if the only thing that matters is party politics. If this was fake Republican candidate (and a criminal coerced to run by a plea bargain, no less) that sucked up 2000 votes this board would be outraged, and rightfully so.
