-Lurid Crime Tales-
Court Docs: Texas Democrats Accused of Using Cocaine to Buy Votes
[Breitbart] MCALLEN, Texas -- A developing federal investigation has brought up allegations that a Hidalgo County Commissioner paid for votes with bags of cocaine
Bags? That seems rather a high price per vote...
while other politicians paid for votes also with cash, cigarettes, marijuana and beer.
The usual incentives, less the promise of gov't jobs.
As the great American philosopher Wednesday Addams would say: "wait."
Court records obtained by Breitbart Texas from the arrest of two women accused of buying votes show that during the democratic primaries in 2012, a campaign manager for a Hidalgo County Commissioner who said that during the campaign, he bought $50 worth of cocaine, commonly known as an 8-ball and split it up in order to give it to the two women so they could use it to entice voters.
Oh the irony, 8-ball used to elect 8-ball.
Earlier this week Liechtenstein second generation immigrants Belinda Solis and Veronica Salazar went before U.S. Magistrate Judge Peter Ormsby who formally charged them with vote buying and set their bond at $10,000.
Extreme yes, but it was all they had in their handbags.
The two women were part of a large year and a half long FBI investigation into election corruption in Hidalgo County.
An investigation no doubt, stemming from a 1972 tip.
