This should not come as "shocking" to anyone on this site...
Although it will...
In my humble opinion, it just proves how much money controls things.
I believe some of the first bribes in American election history were from George Washington.
Where he paid the electorate in kegs of beer to raise enough votes.
I'm sure there were times before that with the Continental Congress, and prior presidents.
Not too much written about those men, though.
Yes we can all be outraged, but if you look at history, it hasn't changed.
Actually if you read about the historically "paid for" votes in America...
This wouldn't surprise you at all.
