Re: Would Harland Prosecute Me For Paying Voters?

That's not what I asked. I asked if you would prosecute me and those
five voters because I paid them for their attention on the condition
that they asserted they probably wouldn't vote for me.

HH) your attention-getting stunt did not really violate the spirit of
the law and a jury should not convict you for it. (HH

If you want it to be legal to pay voters for their attention, but
illegal to pay voters for their votes, then you're going to keep jurors
very very busy.
