“We take it very seriously. Fundamentally, we believe it is wrong to sell your
vote,” said John Aiken, a spokesman for the office. “There are people that have

I didn't know it was against the law to sell your vote. What's so wrong about that. I can sell my labor and my personal property, why can't I sell my vote? Can somebody elucidate on why selling your vote is considered such a heinous thing?
