    I don't care who votes, I encourage it, even you.

    But feeding them and giving them rides as directed by your political party?

    Even your AG is balking at that one.
    But you approve of this?

    Did you happen to read the article?
    I mean anything goes with you guys doesn't it.

    Here, maybe this will help you "get it;"

    Chad,

    I don't know what criteria was used to determine if they were all newly created jobs. I didn't want to us Fed. stats. Stimulus Watch is supposed to be an independant 3rd party watch dog group.

    Simple, low cost bribery. Maybe a semi-hidden message there also........"we will take care of you".

    I guess that means no more fund raising dinners with candidates. I can guarantee they are offering food and access in return for votes and money in a relationship that is much more direct than inviting people to a barbecue to encourage them to vote.

    I don't think they are equivalent at all. The tactics used to gain support from the wealthy are much less ethical. I think it would be great if towns hosted barbecues at polling stations with free meals for everyone who voted. Make it a party. Maybe we'll get turnout up to 70%. If you can't get people to vote, democracy fails. Instead, we have a system that conspires in every way to suppress voter turnout.
