I think all small towns are corrupt like that.
Back about 30 years or so ago I was visiting my brother who lived in a small town near a beach resort area.
One of my brothers buddies owned a gas station/bar/convience store that was located on the main route leading into the tourist beach resort area.
They had been selling raffle tickets for about a month or so,the prize was a large basket filled with bottles of assorted liquors.
My brother and I went up to the bar there to drink some beers and while we were there they decided to draw a winner for the raffle.There were only
about 3 or 4 locals and my brother and I in the bar at the time.
They draw a raffle ticket out of a large glass fishbowl looking thing that was full of raffle ticket stubs.The guy that drew the ticket anounnces the
name on the ticket and then asks if anybody knows that name, everyone said they never heard that name before so the guy throws the ticket in the
He draws another ticket and asks if anyone recognizes the name, before anyone could answer he says, nevermind the phone number on the ticket isn`t a
local number so he throws that ticket away too.
The third ticket he draws has the name of a local person who lives a few miles from the bar so he asks one of the people standing in the bar to take
the basket of liquor over to the winners house.
I can`t say for sure but I think he was going to keep drawing tickets until a local good ole boy won.
If you were a tourist who bought a ticket on your way to or from the beach resort I don`t think you ever had a chance of winning that raffle
