    I came across while reading a local paper on line. and I thought you all might get a kick out of this.

    Hopefully he can get a judge that can take a joke.


    I'm surprised that someone didn't do this back in the eBay crazy auction days.

    LMAO - even regular folk don't want to waste their money on a vote.

    Pretty funny this was the first time somebody joked about selling their vote on eBay?

    5 years for this? Wow. So much for disgression.

    I love how they tried to guilt him with the whole veteran thing.

    Thats got to be one of the most retarded things I have heard on both ends of it, the law and the kid.

    Not entirely. The law itself is just fine, but targeting and taking this kid seriously is the real idiotic part of the whole thing. Yes buying votes is wrong and should remain a heavily punishable offense, but is it really necessary to subject this kid to prison?

    I think they are going a bit overboard and the judge is itching to make an example out of him.

    Funny and sad at the same time. I am so surprised that this didn't happen 4 years ago in the big eBay silly auctions craze.

    The kid better get a good lawyer and fight it and keep his butt out of prison.

    Come on, he was trying to get his first positive feedback. I think making him spend time with the veterans is the right punishment. If he does go to jail, I'm pretty sure he might be auctioning off his jail cell.

    The terrible part is, that if this kid goes to prison, he'll probably return a criminal or mentally crippled. Prisons don't teach people lessons, they break them.

    Ironic, it's against the law for him to sell his vote but yet politicians buy and sell votes all the time.

    I agree that prison is a bit harsh in this particular case. He's a young college student and just did an idiotic thing.
